Victoria County Scenic Hiking Trails Map
Testimonial: “The brochure is Scenic Hiking Routes – Victoria County. It is an excellent brochure because there is a map of Cape Breton with the 35 hiking routes indicated on the map and then there is a description for each hiking route indicating the level of difficulty and the estimated time to complete the hiking route: https://naturallyactivevictoriacounty.files.wordpress.com/2015/09/hikingmapfinalproofsept152015.pdf . Thanks!” – Dawn MacKinnon, Victoria County Visitor Information Centre (Jul. 17, 2018)
Please note & pay special attention to the following updates on the above Hiking Map:
#30 – Sugar Loaf Trail: The time should be 2 to 2 1/2 hours.
Money Pt Gulch Trail #19. The “old road’ is a continuation of the Money Point Road in Bay St. Lawrence. If one starts here the ‘hard’ part of the hike is climbing and descending the mountain. In the last part of the printed description mention is made of ‘bell’ in Bay Road Valley. This is a reference to the Bell Aliant building. It is a completely different way to approach the trail. The length of the hike and the difficulty are very different depending on which way you do it”.
Please note: St. Ann’s Saturday Afternoon Community Hikes – A friendly reminder everyone that these hikes often start on or pass over private property (i.e. Spinnegan Summit Trail). All of these hikes are prearranged with owner approval granted in advance and with the owner(s) frequently acting as guides/hosts. It is incumbent upon all involved to help keep these guidelines followed. We are spreading-the-word asking that the private nature of the hikes be respected. These hikes are open to the public only on the dates advertised.
