Pollets Cove is an incredibly scenic and challenging hike which is located on the north west side of Cape Breton Island. It is recommended to camp overnight but it is doable as a day hike if you start early enough. The trail itself is very rugged, yet nicely worn, as you hike over two mountains to one of the most beautiful cove’s you will ever set foot in.
