Nova Scotia Cabot Trail route marker (1980s)



Around the northern tip of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, there is a scenic route known as the Cabot Trail. The route, a 300-km loop, carries the name of explorer John Cabot, who visited the area in 1497. Although the Cabot Trail has had a number of different route signs over the years, it currently uses a white rectangular marker introduced in the 1980s. This design features a stylized silhouette of a road winding through the mountains. Across the bottom of the mountains are two wavy lines to represent the ocean.

Relieve your travels on Cape Breton Island with our recreation of the modern Cabot Trail route marker. We’ve precisely replicated every detail, from the details of the mountain and waves, to the exact size and layout of the various elements on the sign. Original signs like this turn up on the collector’s market occasionally, but there’s no guarantee of being able to find one at any given time. Skip the hassle with our replica of this classic sign.

Our replica Cabot Trail route marker is printed on heavy 14-gauge steel. It has a glossy, non-reflective finish, making it an excellent home decor item. It’s also durable enough for outdoor display, and will withstand the elements for years to come. To make installation easy, we’ve included two pre-drilled mounting holes. Select one of the following sizes:

  • 9 in. × 12 in.
  • 15 in. × 20 in.
  • 21 in. × 28 in.
  • 30 in. × 40 in.
