We are Located on The Great Trail
Explore part of the longest recreational trail in the world! Hike, ski, snowshoe, cycle, or ride The Great Trail (AKA The TransCanada Trail). From our location you can head south down the rolling mountain side to the village of Whycocomagh, or head north to Lake Ainslie and on to Inverness on a series of back country forestry roads and marked trails.
Snowmobile Association of Nova Scotia (SANS) 104 Trail and 409 Trail
The groomed SANS Cape Clear 104 Trail passes through the Iron Mountain Wilderness Cabins property from Hwy 365 up over the Whale's back ridge, this meets with the groomed SANS 409/The TransCanada Trail (from Whycocomagh) at our Iron Mountain Wilderness Cabins property. Ride the back country right up to the edge of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park or out to the coast at Inverness or over Campbell and River Denys Mountains all the way to Port Hastings. With so much trail to ride, the big question will be which direction to explore! The stunning Cape Clear look off would be an excellent day trip via snowmobile.
Don't forget to purchase your trail permit. Visit the SANS website for more details.
