The Cabot Trail. Maybe the best driving road ever. (lots of pictures)

This past weekend I went on a mini vacation with some friends up to Great Breton Nova Scotia to drive something called the Cabot Trail. This turned into the most amazing driving experience I've ever had. The Trail itself is 185 miles and completes a loop around the northern tip of Great Breton Island, most is in a National Park. (now I don't really take pictures so most or all are borrowed from others on the run)

The route:

C and F are hotel locations B and E were gas stops (we figured 200 miles in between gas stops would be safe for all cars)

Starting at the NH rest area:

Crossed the border that day and made it to a very nice hotel in St. John for the night. Lots of beer and stories of the day at the hotel bar that night.

They also reserved some awesome parking spots underground for us that night:

The next morning we were off to our Hotel in Beddeck Nova Scotia for 2 nights to run the Cabot the following day. Just the roads up there were a lot of fun no traffic no police just great roads and fun driving:

This trip was nothing short of amazing. I cannot even describe how epic this road was and the area was I was totally blow away by everything. Total mies for me were around 1900, I did a Tail of the Dragon trip with this group last year and this was far and away better.

I did manage to kill every bug in Canada:

That is awesome and thanks for sharing. Never heard of this road, but is now on my list....thanks for representing us PW Boss owners in the midst of all that European hardware.....
