Turn left just past the Canso Causeway, following Route 19 to the community of Mabou. In Mabou turn left on the road to Mabou Harbour... after 4-5 kms look for a dirt road on the right. Follow this road as it winds through the Mabou Highlands, past Mabou Mines and MacDonalds Glen to the bridge over Mill Brook. Park here or at the trailhead just past the bridge, up the hill a bit.
The community has contructed an excellent trail system throughout the Mabou Highlands (there is a map of the trail network at the trailhead). Several of the trails follow the coastline and up along the highlands, affording spectacular views. Probably the best view is from Beinn Bhiorach.
