Incredible place hard to describe. Even the drive up the mountain to the look off was beautiful. Sorry I cannot say much more than you have to see it for yourself. This is as scenic as anywhere in Canada or the world for that matter.

It is 6 km from the main road to the parking area, & it about 5.9 km of really bad roads. The view is truly spectacular. There may be one or two other cars there.

Beautiful views, very windy so being a sweater. Also, fairly steep, but short hill. Very doable walk even for people out of shape. Breathtaking views.

Stumbled across this place while exploring Nova Scotia and was blown away. Great place to visit to be alone with your thoughts and take in the view of the bay. It takes a couple of hours worth of driving to reach from Moncton, but it's...More
