Sponsored links


The Cabot Trail is one of the top 5 motor routes in the world. The Cabot Trail is a highway and scenic roadway in the Canadian province of Nova Scotia. This version of the Cabot Trail goes counterclockwise and starts and end in Baddeck.

The Cabot Trail is also mentioned in the Billy Connolly documentary: Journey to the Edge of the World. The route measures 298 km (185 mi) in length and completes a loop around the northern tip of the island, passing along and through the scenic Cape Breton Highlands. It is named after the explorer John Cabot who landed in Atlantic Canada in 1497.

The northern section of the Cabot Trail passes through Cape Breton Highlands National Park. The western and eastern sections follow the rugged coastline, providing spectacular views of the ocean. The southwestern section passes through the Margaree River valley before passing along Bras d'Or Lake.

Road signs along the route instead have a unique mountain logo. The entire route is open year-round.
