This revised edition has new and detailed information on 40 new hiking trails on Cape Breton Island, ranging from its very northern tip at Money Point all the way to the Ghost Beach Trail, which begins as soon as you cross the Canso Causeway. This hands-on account of the most enjoyable, challenging, family-oriented, and entertaining hiking trails in Cape Breton have been personally mapped, explored, and conquered by the author and provide accurate, helpful and poignant tips and pointers on how to enjoy each of these hikes -- from a quick stroll after lunch to full and multi-day excursions.

This new and revised edition of Hiking Trails of Cape Breton takes us to new places and uncovers new trails, all designed to deliver the most accurate and up-to-date information about the delights (and possible hazards) of self-propelled excursions into the woods and mountains in and around the highlands and lowlands of Cape Breton.

As well as instructions for finding each trail and descriptions of the trails themselves, this revised edition of Hiking Trails of Cape Breton , includes maps and synoptic information on length, time, difficulty, other uses, facilities, and the correct topographical map to use. New to this edition are trailhead GPS listings for all hikes, and, for those who carry cellphones as safety devices, information about the often-uncertain reception in Cape Breton's mountains and woodlands. Also new to this edition are sidebars on plants, animals, historic sites, and other interesting features of the trails.
