Thank-you hikers for an amazing 10 days of hiking along the Cabot Trail, Cape Breton Highlands and Northern Cape Breton.
The 14th Annual Hike the Highlands Festival was a great success thanks to you, our volunteer team, our partners and our sponsors. The weather gods treated us nicely and visiting hikers got to see many of our special places of nature.
