Solo on the Seawall

A solo traverse of the northern most point in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia from Meat Cove to Pleasant Bay on one of the most rugged, untouched and remote pieces of land in Atlantic Canada. This trek takes you from the sandy beaches of the Atlantic Ocean to some of the tallest mountains in Nova Scotia. One wrong step and you could plummet 450 meters down a rocky cliffside and into the rough ocean below. With very dense populations of Bear, Moose ,and coyote this hike is not for the faint of heart. Follow along as I push myself to the limit to experience some of the best views that the Maritimes have to offer.

Director Biography - Mark Mitchell

Self proclaimed outdoorsman, seeker of great adventure. Mark Mitchell has been hiking for many years and grown a deep love for sleeping beneath the stars, documenting his experiences, and pushing his body to the limits. With each adventure comes the need for deeper and more challenging experiences. Some notable accomplishments would be hiking 82km in the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim to Rim, hiking 84km in the Canadian Rockies on the Brazeau Loop trail, hiking all of the major hikes in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Future plans of hiking 82km on the Laugavegur & Fimmvorduhals trails in Iceland 2023 and the Great Divide Trail in 2024 which traverses the continental divide between Alberta and British Columbia, wandering through the vast wilderness of the Canadian Rocky Mountains for more than 1200km, which is one of the most spectacular and challenging long‐distance trails on the planet.

Director Statement

It was a pleasure to travel by foot across one of the most rugged and untouched pieces of land in Atlantic Canada. The experience was one that will not soon be forgotten. I would encourage any experienced hiker to add the Seawall Trail to their bucket list as it will push you to your limits and in return provide you with some of the best views you can find in all of Canada.
