It was a wonderful day at the park, hiking, practicing map & compass and night navigation. It is an excellent location for training cadets. We were there from 9 am until 9 pm, it was windy so no fire but there were lots of rations...More

Originally a provincial campground, this mountain top park has an awesome view of Antigonish town and on a clear day, Cape Breton. The paved road that circles in the park is a popular walking trail that requires no special equipment or fitness level. In the...More

Wonderful place. Trails are well marked and the lodge is beautiful. Outdoor enthusiasts dream. Hikes can take as long as you like since there are many trails to pick from. View from the top is amazing
