Cape Forchu Lightstation
The Lighthouse Route begins with one of Nova Scotia's most photographed lighthouses, the Cape Forchu Lightstation. With approximately 160 lighthouses in Nova Scotia, the most in any other province in Canada, they have become a shared symbol of our culture and lifestyle.
In 1604, Samuel de Champlain discovered this forked tongue of land that he named, Cap Forchu, meaning forked cape. Now it is your turn to come discover what the excitement is all about!

The Sandford Drawbridge is located on Drawbridge Road which is a small side road near the north end of the Ross Durkee Road in the village of Sandford. The north wharf, which is no longer in existence, was built in 1915 to protect the highway and the entrance to the inner harbour boathole which was accessible only at high tide and sheltered the vessels or boats during storms. It was about this time that the drawbridge was built. When the wharves were constructed, a footbridge spanned the entrance to the boathole. When this entrance was widened to admit larger boats, the footbridge was replaced with a drawbridge. This has been extended several times and in 1984 was relocated at the entrance to the pond.
Port Maitland Cattle Pound
The Port Maitland Cattle Pound, probably built during the spring or summer of 1871, is one of the few intact cattle pounds remaining in the Municipality of Yarmouth. These pounds were used to temporarily hold stray cattle until their owners reclaimed them. The man whose responsibility it was to catch and pen the cattle was called the cattle reeve, an office that was usually filled by appointment of Municipal Council. Most villages had a reeve and a cattle pound which was used until well into the 1900's.
Leif Ericson Trail
The Leif Ericson Trail is located at the tip of scenic Cape Forchu approximately 10 minutes from the Town of Yarmouth. Walk the shorelines in Leif Ericson Park enjoying the views and crisp salty air of the Yarmouth Harbour. Enjoy the view of working fishing boats, the Cat Ferry passing in and out of the Yarmouth Harbour, or become mesmerized by the beauty of the sea.
The trail is also a wonderful place for a picnic. There are over 19 acres of well groomed grounds surrounding the light allowing visitors to appreciate the magnificent scenery.
The Leif Ericson Park, a new development of walking paths, picnic sites, and benches with views, located at the southern tip of the site, is surrounded by water and affords a great photo opportunity to watch sunsets.
