Warren Lake is the largest lake in Cape Breton Highland National Park. It is located in the northeast end of the Cape Breton island, accessible from the famous Cabot Trail and 2 hours north of Sydney, NS. The lake has a 2.9-mile (4.7 km) loop trail around it. The park is open year round but visitor services are only available from mid-May until mid-October. An EarthSky community member says: “There is no ambient light. It is very easy to access.”

A science communicator and educator since 1976, Byrd believes in science as a force for good in the world and a vital tool for the 21st century. "Being an EarthSky editor is like hosting a big global party for cool nature-lovers," she says.
