Canadian Xpress April 2022 Monthly Challenge: National Parks VI – Cape Breton Highlands
Written by cxa001 on April 1, 2022
Cape Breton Highlands National Park is a Canadian national park on northern Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia. The park was the first national park in the Atlantic provinces of Canada and covers an area of 948 square kilometers. It is one of 42 in Canada’s system of national parks.
It consists of mountains, valleys, waterfalls, rocky coastlines, and the Cape Breton Highlands, a tundra-esque plateau. Forest types include Acadian and Boreal. The park includes the highest point in Nova Scotia, White Hill, at 533.5 meters above sea level. One-third of the Cabot Trail passing through the park features ocean and mountain views. The park is known for its steep cliffs and deep river canyons that carve into a forested plateau bordering the Atlantic Ocean. The park contains 26 marked hiking trails, including the Skyline Trail.
This month, we visit the park checking out White Hill along the way, before crossing the Gulf of St Lawrence to Prince Edward Island.
