“have a safe and memorable visit”

Near Lake Ainslie, the largest fresh water lake in all of Cape Breton, lies Egypt Falls. It may also be listed as Piper’s Glen in some hiking books. The falls were originally called Appin Falls, named after the Steward family of Appin, Scotland, who settled near the falls in the 1800?. The trail leading to the falls is short (only 15 minutes)and downhill the whole way. The last five minutes forces you to ascend the steep walls of the gorge, which houses the Matheson Glen Brook. This brook is home to one of the only falls in Cape Breton which is wider then it is tall (20 meters in width and less than half that in height). The final portion of the descent is quite steep and caution is advised. If you take your time climbing, and enjoy the scenery of the woodland hike, you will have a safe and memorable visit to Egypt Falls.
