Goat Island Trail
Goat Island Trail. Sponsored by Eskasoni Cultural Journeys, this trail is well marked and includes abundant interpretative signage on Mi’kmaq culture and traditions. The trail consists of a 2.0 km groomed loop with a 0.3 km connecting trail. It’s an easy hike and although considered a seasonal trail, it is suitable all year for either walking or snowshoeing. The Eskasoni Cultural Journeys – Goat Island Trail is a business venture of the Eskasoni Band. While people are free to walk the 2.3 km groomed trail, it may at times, be unavailable due to special events. Tours are hosted for cruise ships, schools and organizations from May 1 to November 15 annually. Tours are available by pre-booking. Restrooms and a gift shop with locally-made handicrafts are located on site. The parking area is usually plowed in the winter. The trail is maintained by Eskasoni Cultural Journeys.
