The Cabot Trail is a loop, full circle . Either way , you will go through Baddeck. This time of year ,the key is to decide where you want to be at sunset ,facing west or east . Hope you have at least 3 night son the Island ??

Check to see if Louisburg is still open as if it's closed, you just get to see the fort from a distance. Try to find their toll free telephone .

Driving the Cabot Trail clockwise gives you a great view when travelling down the east side. Even the driver is able to enjoy the fantastic scenery while carefully traversing these roadways.
