Tenerife Mountain


62-1230 Bay St Lawrence Rd, Cape North

Overview

Tenerife Peak, also known as Theodore Fricker Mountain, is a hidden gem on Cape Breton Island, the trailhead is located between the villages of Cape North and Dingwall. Blink and you’ll miss the start of the trail which takes you up through a beautiful forest. The trail starts off gentle then takes you up a very steep slope for the remainder of the time, watch for loose rock as you near the top. As you near the summit, you’ll be above the trees and the reward is stunning 360-degree views of the surrounding landscape. After you’ve caught your breath hike the short ridge-line for even more beautiful views.
