One of the most scenic drives in the world is the historic Cabot Trail. Named for explorer John Cabot, the Road was constructed in 1936 around three sides of the newly created national park and today makes Cape Breton Highlands a piece of natural Canada that can be enjoyed by those unable to make the journey on foot. It is a jumping off point for many marine excursions available to observe and research the local whale and seal population as well as the bald eagles that breed on Cape Breton Island. Most of the park interior is "formidable, even inhospitable" wilderness that harbors a number of woodlands.
