Hikers: Welcome to Amazing!

Cape Breton Island (or Unama’kik in Mi'kmaw) is a wonderful place to explore on foot; steep valleys, hidden waterfalls, majestic old growth forests and a rugged coastline are just a few of the natural features waiting for the curious and intrepid hiker. While it has plenty of wonderful day hikes, Cape Breton lacks a true long-distance hiking trail.

We are proposing the Seawall Trail, an epic trek along the coast and cliffs of Northern Cape Breton - Unama’kik. We believe that, when completed, the Seawall Trail will attract hiking enthusiasts from around the globe and will help establish Nova Scotia as a world-class hiking destination.
