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.

Explore the night in a place where it truly gets dark. Learn tips and tricks for using your senses to peek under the cover of night. A symphony of owls, loons and toads accompanies you on this one-of-a-kind journey into the vibrant nocturnal world.

This guided walk takes place on Warren Lake Trail and begins at the Warren Lake picnic area. Visitors staying at Broad Cove Campground can access the picnic area via the 1.6 km connector trail, or a short drive.
