Province - State: Nova Scotia
The Cabot Trail on Cape Breton Island Nova Scotia. We entered the trail in St. Anns and did the trail counter clockwise and ended up in Port Hawkesbury.
We stayed at the Cornerstone motel just east of Cheticamp. This motel is very rider friendly and the owners are riders. The motel is just outside the western entrance to highlands national park. Less than $80 for a great room right on the river and a two minute walk to the ocean. We would stay here again with out question.

Please add anymore information to share with riders that weve not asked you already:
The Cabot Trail is one of the most recognizable riding destinations in North America if not the world. We were excited to finally conquer her roads and was one for the bucket list. We rode the trail counter clockwise and took two days to ride it. This allowed us to take in all the trail and the island had to offer. Be prepared for inclement weather as it can rain at anytime and we experienced mother natures tears. I saying that we enjoyed the ride and found the best part of the ride was from Pleasant Bay to Cheticamp. The other mention here was the great information supplied by Daniel Ross of Cabotrailbiker.com . Daniel also took the time to meet up with us and toured us around the island. A great guy who we consider a friend. Take a few minutes and check out his site for the best riding information on the Cabot Trail...
