Clyburn Valley Trail – Cape Breton Highlands National Park
Hikers will marvel at the spectacular stands of hardwood trees,
boulders bigger than cars, old abandoned beaver ponds, meadows, apple
trees and even the remains of an old gold mine! This trail follows the
river for most of the way, but you can catch a glimpse of the Highlands
Links Golf Course as the trail weaves its way up this valley. Feel
humbled by the sheer rock face of Franey Mountain 425 m (1400 ft) above.
This level, easy trail is great for a fitness walk or relaxing stroll.
Mountain bikes are permitted but there are rough sections. The trailhead
is just north of the Clyburn River bridge. This trail is at an
elevation of 5 – 50 m (15 – 165 ft) and is an 8.1 km (5 mi) return
trip. Visit our website for further details.
