Around Janvrin's Island we have many wonderful hiking areas. A drive along the magnificent Cabot Trail, one of the most beautiful and scenic roads in North America, Parks Canada has prepared many trails for all hiking levels. On most trails you will see moose, deer and sometimes then blackbear. To give you an idea of the trails, here are some of our favorites:
The Janvrin's Trail
will guide you around the Island following the coast line in approximately 3.5 hours. It is an easy walk on beaches and rocks at low tide. You will see seals, many sea birds, eagles, white tip deer and much more.
Delorier Peninsula Trail
at the east of Janvrin's Island is a 3 hour hiking tour around a beautiful Peninsula. On one side is the rough Ocean and on the other side the calm inland waters. On this tour you will see seabirds and herons hunting, especially at low tide.
Cape Hogan Trail
starts at the Clearwater fishplant and follows the coastline up to the mackerel Point. It is a difficult trail which goes through thick brush and sometimes over wet terrain. But you will have a beautiful view over the Chedabucto bay and with some luck you can see whales and dolphins out off Cape Hogan.

human history that stretches back to the last Ice Age.
