This view a bit south of southwest from the parking lot in the Cape Smokey Provincial Park shows from above the Cabot Trail continuing its ascent, not too far from the highest point on its course (275 m (902 ft)). When it reaches the head of the ravine (at the far right outside the scope of this photo), it will make a 90° turn to the right. At the far right of the photo, somewhat obscured by the trees, one can see the ridge rising to the summit of Smokey Mountain, which lies to the far right and also outside the scope of this photo.
Beyond the ridge, one has a better view of the edges of the Cape Breton Highlands Plateau receding in the distance. It should be clear from the photo that these edges are considerably higher than where I was standing when I took it. Indeed, the highest point along these edges is at 410 m (1,345 ft), on the northern edge of the ravine carved by Wreck Cove Brook, the site of the previously mentioned hydroelectric generating station. Several adjacent points rise to just above 400 m (1,312 ft). By contrast, the parking lot at Cape Smokey Provincial Park is at 260 m (850 ft) and the summit of Smokey Mountain is at 367 m (1,204 ft).
