Benjie's Lake

Cape Breton Highlands National Park

On the plateau at the top of the mountain, this trail crosses wet barrens and evergreen forests typical of the highlands, ending at a small lake. Boardwalks in some sections keep you dry and protect the habitat from trampling. Moose are frequently seen as well as a variety of northern birds.
