Overview

Note: Due to COVID-19, the visitor experience at Parks Canada places will be different than it has been in the past. The health and safety of visitors, employees and all Canadians is of the utmost importance.

Parks Canada is asking visitors to comply with recommendations from Nova Scotia public health authorities by wearing a mask in indoor public spaces, and by respecting recommended social distancing measures at all times.

Parks Canada’s network of protected places is large and diverse. Visitor access, services, and even opening dates may vary across Cape Breton Island and Canso depending on local circumstances. Please visit pc.gc.ca/ns and follow Parks Canada’s social media channels for information and updates on the status of all Parks Canada places.

 

 

As the darkness creeps in, listen for the haunting sounds of the night. Step into the past and become spellbound by the tales of this place, brought to life by the call of the loon and crash of the waves.

This guided walk takes place on Freshwater Lake Trail and begins at the Ingonish Beach day-use area, which is about a 10-minute walk or a short drive from Ingonish Beach Campground.
