Trous de Saumons Professional Review and Guide
"This ride is north of Cheticamp, in the southwest corner of Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Trous de Saumons is an easy, 8-mile out-and-back ride along a former road. Hard-packed and well graded along most of the route, the trail includes only a few sections of exposed and loose rock, where erosion has deteriorated the trail surface. Fortunately, these conditions exist only after the trail reaches a warden's cabin 2 miles into the ride. Up to this point, the ride is suitable for novices and makes a great 4.3-mile round-trip for families or group excursions involving riders of mixed skill levels. Beyond the warden's cabin, the trail becomes both technically and aerobically more difficult. A deteriorating trail surface and several short but steep hills require slightly higher skill and fitness levels."
