Description & Services

Trail Rating Cape Mabou Highlands Trail Club maps have detailed information on the trails and their difficulty rating.
Information There are 3 trailheads:  
Mabou Mines - most accessible and popular 
Sight Point - not always accessible 
Cape Mabou - near the windmill 
Trails are open year round but hiking should be restricted to May-Nov.  
Given the large area and type of terrain, trail maintenance is not assured on all trails.  
Maps are available for $5 in Mabou and a few other places, including the Inverness County Recreation Department. 
We rely almost exclusively on private donations. 
The trails are maintained by the volunteer group, Cape Mabou Trail Club. 
Hours May - November
Accessibility Not Wheelchair Accessible - No facilities available
