Details

White Hill at 535m (1,755 feet) of elevation is the highest point in the province of Nova Scotia. It is located in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park. At 17km West of Ingonish and with no maintained paths to reach it, White Hill is promised to be a very long and troublesome bushwhack. An old radio tower and marker are at the summit. (source: Wikipedia and Andrew Lavigne)

Cape Breton Highlands National Park protects 950 km2 of magnificent highlands and coastal wilderness. The Park is dominated by an elevated, flat-topped plateau, deeply cut by river canyons. This is the location of White Hill. People can access the Park via the Cabot Trail. The  Cabot Trail is considered one of the World’s most scenic destination areas. (source: The Cabot Trail Official Site)

The Lnu’k (aka Mi’Kmaq) are the founding people of Nova Scotia and remain the predominant Aboriginal group within the province. (source: Government of Nova Scotia)
