As soon as your car departs the Bay St Lawrence Road and head towards Meat Cove, the drive takes you to back to time as John Cabot would have seen Cape Breton Island during the 15th century. The dense forest opens up to spectacular views of crags, bluffs and notches against an ocean backdrop. Never mind the unpaved road but pay attention to where you are heading as this drive is not for the wimpy. We encountered a lot of obstacles along the way as the terrain is vulnerable to landslides after a few days of rain. Be sure to pack well for this trip if you plan to go camping since there's barely any business going on in the villages of Capstick, Black Point and Meat Cove. Allow 1 to 2 hours of driving from Cape Road depending on the weather.
