This hike climbs the very steep Roberts Mountain to a tree less peak with an unbelievable 360 view. It is short but quite mighty due to its steepness. The trail starts off modest enough following an old access road leading you through a field and into the forest. When you reach the end of this road and make a left turn onto the second leg of the trail, the hike gets progressively more and more steep until you reach the open field section. From there it is a really steep climb to the top. You can wander freely on top before retracing your steps to return.
The trail is on private property. Please treat it with respect.
From the park entrance in Cheticamp drive ~32 km’s north to Pleasant Bay. Turn left onto Red River Road and drive another 2.5 km’s until you reach the school. Park in the school parking lot if school is not in session, else park along the narrow road. The hike starts on the grass road located at the unused junction about 4 driveways back in the direction you drove in from the school. There is red trail tape marking the start as of July 2014.
