Motorcycling the Cabot Trail

Rate this Adventure Canada Cabot Trail

Added by Moe Lauchert

  • 580 km (360 miles) road
  • Scenic vistas
  • Cliff and ocean-side riding
  • Big sweeping turns and tight hairpins
  • Stretches of fresh pave
  • Minimal traffic

The Cabot Trail weaves among four different bodies of water, including the Atlantic, making for incredibly scenic riding. Be very cautious of wildlife and holding your line. Some turns have gravely inside corners, but are otherwise beautiful.

There are minimal gas stations along this route, some of which run out of gas, so pack an auxiliary tank. A proper motorcycle inspection is necessary for safe driving.

Locals are friendly to motorcyclists and are willing to help tourists, but be mindful of the subtle but existent cultural differences in the area.

Added by Moe Lauchert

Always eager to learn new skills and share my passion for the outdoors; I see every job as a window for self growth. I believe in the idea that every experience affects our worldview and who we become at our core. I value discovery, community and hearing other peoples stories. Whether its climbing, diving, camping, hiking or just sharing a meal; there is always an opportunity to serve others and create the connection that is essential to the human spirit. Photography is a way for me to share in those experiences with others, and teaching; a passage to impart that knowledge or receive new insight.
