Best driving route to Advocate Harbour

I started planning our 30 day trip last August and I cannot believe that it is just a few weeks away !

Our trip will begin in Advocate Harbour, where we will stay for 3 nights. The drive from home to Advocate Harbour is about 10 hours, and we decided to drive straight through , in order to maximize our time in Advocate. I know that i have asked this before, but I cannot find the thread. If I recall, the quickest route from Amherst, NS to Advocate Harbour is rt 302 through Parrsboro, is this what you would recommend?

Thanks to all for the help in planning!

Google maps takes you via Parrsboro this way (Route 302) saying it take one and three quarter hours:

I like to go via Joggins (and you can visit the Fossil Cliffs and Museum if you have time). This takes the same time: http://goo.gl/maps/5Cofb

So it is up to you.

If you don't want to visit Joggins, which is best planned on a low tide, I would recommend the route through Parrsboro. You would think the coastal route through Joggins would be more scenic, but it is not as it is in forested areas almost the entire route, - the Parrsboro route is much more scenic and the road is in better condition.

Thanks so much! I can't wait to get there! Looking forward to spending a day hiking at Cape Chignecto and then a day of kayaking! Good weather, please!
