Great trail for a smooth ride. Crusher dust well packed, turns into dirt/gravel as you get 15-20km out but still great road for biking. Also great family trail.

Creamery to Sutherland Steam Mill 10.5 km, 125 foot gain in elevation. Well packed crusher dust. So perfect for lunch at the mill with an easy ride back to Tatamagouche.as there is a slight down grade. About 1.5 hours round trip if you go quite slowly. Lots of ponds and wildlife, watch out for bears in the spring.

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.

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.

Walking

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.
