There is a lot of history on this usually busy trail. Each area of the hike has its own tale. The trail itself follows the coastline through spruce woods and along some pretty steep edges of cliffs. You are lead through Gun Landing Cove, Brook Landing Cove, around Lorraine Head all the way to Big Lorraine. Retrace your steps to return.
The trail head is located in the parking lot by the lighthouse in Louisbourg.
