Hikers: Welcome to Amazing!

Cape Breton Island 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. 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.

The Seawall Trail Society - a registered non profit - was formed in 2014 with the intention to develop Northern Cape Breton's natural walking assets and to create a product that would support both locals and visitors. In addition to attracting hikers, we believe the trail has great potential as a sustainable economic engine in rural Nova Scotia.

Welcome to Our New Website

With all the work that's been going on lately we thought it would be nice to reveal a newly updated website that better reflects our goals for this ambitious little project of ours. The original site, though functional, was certainly a bit dated - being cobbled together by a board member whose strengths are not exactly web design!

This new site will hopefully give our supporters more information - and more inspiration - in the form of photo galleries, a living trail map and, if we can keep on top of it, some regular blog posts.

Additional features include a section to view all relevant documents concerning the project as well as information on our team and supporters.
