Whycocomagh Mountain - Departure Point for Snowmobiling Adventures in the Cape Breton Highlands
The inland village of Whycocomagh, located about 30 minutes from the Canso Causeway on Cape Breton Island, is a popular departure point for snowmobiling in the Cape Breton Highlands. The groomed 409 SANS trail departs from the base of Whycocomagh Mountain and meets the 104 Cape Clear snowmobile trail on our property. From here, the 104 heads across the Keppoch Plateau to the Margaree Valley. Scenic trails around Lake Ainslie and beautiful look offs over the Bras d'Or Lakes are to be found in this area. A solid day trip will put you at the Cape Clear look-off for a stunning vista of Cape Breton's wilderness mountains and the Margaree river valley. The local snowmobile clubs and volunteers in our area keep the tail system in the best possible riding conditions. New riders to the area will appreciate the signage to help you have the best experience riding in the southern Cape Breton Highlands!
The Cape Breton Highlands are ZONE 1 of the Snowmobile Association of Nova Scotia (SANS) trail network.
Less Driving, More Riding!
Our ideal location in the southern Cape Breton Highlands at nearly 1000ft above sea level, means you can spend less time driving to your accommodations and trailhead and more time riding the beautiful groomed snowmobile trails! At the gateway to the highlands, we are only a 35 minute drive from mainland Nova Scotia, but thanks to our elevation, we are where the snow is.
