Salt Mountain Trail

Salt Mountain Trail is located in the Whycocomagh Provincial Park. The trail and associated camping sites are maintained by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The popular trail is well-marked and is steep in places. The views up the Skye River valley and over the Bras d’Or Lake are spectacular.  The park is open from mid-June to mid-October.  Although considered a seasonal trail, it is suitable all year for either walking or snowshoeing despite the lack of winter maintenance.  Access to water and restrooms is seasonal. A plaque on the trail commemorates the donation of Salt Mountain by Isabel Stewart Farley in memory of her brother Hugh McLennan who was killed during World War 1.
