Description & Services
Information This is a maintained 2.5 km return hike to the top of Salt Mountain rising 230  
metres (750 ft) above Bras d'Or Lake. The steep climb to the top travels through 
a forest of predominantly mixed woods. At the summit there are several lookoff 
points offering picturesque views of the lake and surrounding mountains.  
 
The park itself contains camping, outhouses, picnic area, parking, cooking and  
table shelters, water taps and showers. Visitors are reminded to be careful on  
the very steep, slippery slope on the side of the mountain.
