Bakeapple Barren Northeast is a Canadian peak in the Cape Breton Highlands of Cape Breton Island, and is the third highest elevation point in the province of Nova Scotia, the second highest in Inverness County, Nova Scotia, after The Pinnacle (Cape Breton).

Located on the Cape Breton Highlands plateau, 25 kilometres (16 mi) northeast of Cheticamp, and 24 kilometres (15 mi) northwest of Ingonish, the peak is situated in the Cape Breton Highlands National Park and is accessible only by hiking. It is a remote, flat hill, rising from a marshy, barren, windswept upland about 11 kilometres (6.8 mi) from the nearest road and 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) from any maintained hiking trails.

Bakeapple Barren Northeast rises to the north of Bakeapple Barren proper, attaining an elevation of 526 metres (1,726 ft). Its nearest higher neighbour, The Pinnacle, lies just 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) to the west.
