Immerse yourself in the splendour of the sunset as the ocean glistens below. A walk through the boreal forest reveals this panoramic view, often graced by bald eagles, whales and moose. Here, the mountains truly meet the sea.

This guided hike takes place on the famous Skyline Trail and begins 2 hours before sunset. 7.5 km (4.7 m) return. The main trail is suitable for most fitness levels. The Skyline Trail is a 10 minute drive from Cheticamp Campground.
