Lone Shieling

Cape Breton Highlands National Park

Dominated by 350 year old sugar maple trees, the Grande Anse Valley is one of the largest old growth hardwood forests in the Maritimes. One of the most protected areas of the park, access is restricted to this short trail. A replica of a Scottish crofter's hut is found at the beginning of the trail. Find out why it's here. Keep an eye out for wildlife – moose like it here too.
