Itinerary for hikers - Cape Breton and Cape Chignecto?

Jump to last reply

We're planning to visit Nova Scotia in early July. We're avid hikers, and we also want to do a bit of biking and kayaking. We love the backwoods, and we but my husband loves food and wants to maximize his consumption of great seafood on this trip. So, we would tend to spend more time in the remote areas of the province, but we would only backpack/camp maybe one night - and even then, only if necessary to take in the best scenery.

We have 7 nights. Arriving at Yarmouth via the Scotia Prince on July 5th in the morning. The plan was to spend a few nights near the Cabot Trail. We also wanted to spend time at Cape Chignecto (we've heard fabulous reports about the hiking), and I just love the idea of backpacking along a cliff and camping in so we can see the sun set over the water.

The problem is - we're already driving a lot in a short amount of time, and Cape Chignecto is really out of the way. We would need to spend our last night somewhere near Yarmouth, because the ferry leaves early in the morning. Has anyone visited Cape Chignecto? Is it worth the detour? Should we backpack, or is there a decent place to stay/eat nearby, since its so remote?

Thanks in advance!
