The CBIH celebrated 20 years of walking for Fun, Fitness and Friendship exploring the hiking and walking trails of Cape Breton Island in the Highlands National Park.
A weekend of walking and social activities such as a Meet and Greet began on Friday 30 June. Starting off with two walk events, one at Ingonish Beach and the Middle Head Trail and an afternoon stroll on the Clyburn Valley Trail along the Clyburn River and the Highlands National Park Golf Course.
Friday evening at the Ingonish Hall, members of CB Island Hoppers greeted our guest from other parts of the Atlantic Provinces with the other "F' in our motto "FOOD" , as wells as entertainment.

Members and guest staying at the Keltic Lodge had an additional evening of fun, as we enjoyed local entertainment in the lounge late into the evening 😁
While the rest of the province and other parts of the island had rain!! The Ingonish side of the island only had a light shower in the morning and the walk events at Warren Lake and Broad Cove Mountain continued as planned for our Canada Day walk event,

A message from Darcy Noble and Ron Kent:
Hi Cal and Barb and Rollie,Memories of my trip to Cape Breton have been with me all week. I loved your part of Nova Scotia, and your hospitality felt like a big warm hug.
Everything was so well organized and I know that a lot of effort and helping hands go into making it seem that way.
It was a very memorable trip for Ron and I. Thank you for creating such a special weekend for us all.
From Ibel Scammell
Great anniversary weekend, CBIH! Loved every minute of hanging out with you Capers on your beautiful island!
The participants had the choice of one of two events for Sunday, Mica Hill within the Highlands National park near Neil's Harbour or continue north to Bay Saint Lawrence and the Money Point Trail and the Kaufman Trail, near the most northerly part of Cape Breton. This part of the island overlooks St. Paul's Island, the most northern part of Nova Scotia.
After the dinner the Atlantic Director for the Canadian Volkssport Federation presented volunteer pins to several of our members: Joe MacKinnon - 10 Years; Lucy Nardini - 10 Years; Barb Thistle - 15 Years; Elsie Buck - 15 Years; Cal Thistle - 15 Years; Rollie Coombes - 20 Years Several more to be posted later!
The Coastal Trail on Monday morning proved to be one of the most memorable trails for the weekend with many scenic views along the trail.
