The coastal section of the Seawall Trail will be a 48 kilometer wilderness hike through varied terrain. It will be hut based and will require up to five days (four nights) to complete.
This coastal trail will expand upon existing trails and will complete the route from Meat Cove to Pleasant Bay.
A series of nested loops - day hikes - will be located near Meat Cove and will be developed using new and existing trails.
The Seawall Trail has received funding!
Visitors to northern Cape Breton will soon be able to enjoy a new coastal hiking trail within the Polletts Cove-Aspy Fault Wilderness Area north of the Cabot Trail.
The Province is investing $6.4 million in the design and construction of the nearly 50-kilometre Seawall Trail, including huts and bridges, as well as marketing, communications and engagement with local Mi’kmaw communities in the traditional district of Unama'kik (Cape Breton).
