Royal Battery Trail - Fortress of Louisbourg National Historic Site


Highway 22, near Parks Canada Visitor Centre

902-733-3552


Overview

Located on Route 22 just past the entrance to the Parks Canada visitor centre, this short 678 metre (0.42 mile) looped walk skirts the outline of a major French defence work, the once impressive Royal Battery.

Given the nature of this trail, there is no actual trailhead. Interpretive panels and a spectacular view of the harbour, the Fortress of Louisbourg, and the lighthouse combine to offer memorable visual experiences for many visitors.

Parking is available. Open daily year-round.
