Royal Battery Trail


Highway 22, near Parks Canada Visitor Centre

902-733-3552


This short 678-metre (0.4-mile) looped walk

Battery. 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.
