It is a sad day in the Cape Breton Highlands today…this is the last day of the Hike the Highlands Festival.  It has been a wonderful ten days of hiking and making new friends. The weather cooperated throughout the festival and our meterologist, Bill Danielson, did a great job giving us sunny conditions for the most of the festival. 

Forty hikers enjoyed the last two guided hikes today at Corney Brook and Uisge Ban Falls. Yesterday, 50 hikers hiked Franey and Middlehead trails during another beautiful sunny day.  Altogether over 460 hikers enjoyed hiking the 18 guided hikes during the festival.  

The closing ceremonies on Saturday night featured a slide show of many of the hikes during the festival,  thank-you (s) to volunteers, festival partners & sponsors, hikers and communities, door prizes and food.  It was an evening of celebration and thanking hikers, volunteers, festival partners and sponsors for a wonderful festival.

In closing, thanks to all of you for making the 4th Annual Hike the Highlands Festival such a great success and for an  amazing 10 days of hiking in the Highlands. See you back next year.
