Continuation of the Salt trail. Amazing with cycling!

Slight elevations. Smoothe. Fairly busy - walking, running and biking. All very accommodating. I enjoyed biking on this trail! Lots of birds and squirrels.

Did this trail in January, there was a few inches of snow on the terrain almost the whole hike. Great views. The majority of it was repetitive steep climbs and descents for the length of it, we then hiked down and did the way back on the flat trail which was about another 7k. Took us about 7 hours total with lots of stops and slowed down by the snow and weather. Can be hard on the body, but a good challenge!

Heard about and saw signs for the trail. Finally tried it last Tuesday, was not expecting such an amazing trail! Certainly recommend.

an old railed so the trail is flat it is a great bike trail with interesting view along the way. the trail through Tatamagouche is fantastic with bridges and rest stops

A great hike out to the lake. Great spot to take a picnic and spend some time by the lake.

Didn't manage to get for because of snow but will definitely go back

Not difficult!!! Tatamagouche has lots to offer!! Dining, museums, shopping, banking etc. I have bikes\d all the trail between Wallace and Pictou, the "Tata" section is by far the most enjoyable, though the others are also very good. Kudos to the Volunteers who do the maintenance!!! My wife is/was an inexperienced biker, she had no difficulty on this trail!! Very flat, a great outing!!

Good surface rail trail, travels through swampy area in middle, but trail is great for biking except one loose gravel area of "DIP" in a ravine. great birdwatching.

I've done many of the trails... North Granite Ridge as well as Admiral Lake, Gibraltar Rock and Bayer Lake Loops. It's a challenging trail system with some spectacular views of the area from numerous look offs along the trail.

Nice trail with only a few minor rough patches. Good packed surface.
One section approx. 200 meters long that is rough due to farm machinery using this small part of the Trail.

Did a 9km loop around this trail, it has some nice lookouts & it wasn't very busy when I did it. I would go back

Located on the Short Line Railbed Trail (See also Jitney Trail and Butter Trail) from Oxford to Pictou, the Wallace Bridge itself is a beautiful spot. Take note of the eastern section, mounted on a round pier with a large ring gear, so that section could be rotated 90 degrees, to allow sailing ships to pass to access the Wallace stone quarry.

Portion of the Short Line Railbed trail between the Jitney Trail and Wallace Bridge and containing the Butter Trail within Tamagouche. Also forms a link in the Trans Canada Trail network. Multi-user trail (including ATV, snowmobile, and bicycle) is well-maintained, accessible year-round, mostly level, and can hardly be called "difficult". 25-KM section within Colchester County is maintained by Tatamagouche Area Trails Association. Mixed farmland and forest with road crossings every 2 to 5 KM.
