Our walking trails, which help tell the stories of Louisbourg, are located outside the walls of the Fortress of Louisbourg including areas across the harbour and along the shores of the North Atlantic. Use of these trails is at your own risk.
There are no gates to consider when accessing the Old Town Trail.
Located on Route 22 just past the Royal Battery Trail, this 2.25 kilometre (1.4 mile) walk along the shore of Louisbourg Harbour takes visitors through what is known locally as Old Town, telling its story, from 300 years ago to present day, through a series of interpretive panels.
Ending at the causeway, the trail brings visitors into the 18th century, to the place where the original fortified town once stood.
Impressive views of the Fortress of Louisbourg and the harbour can be enjoyed along this historic trail.

Bicycles are not permitted on the Old Town Trail. Wheelchair accessible. Parking is available. Open daily.
