► We are often asked about the name of our event...Butter?
The east-west portion of the Trans Canada Trail through Colchester County, Nova Scotia follows the former railway line along the North Shore of the province. The trail section through Tatamagouche is known as the Butter Trail, named after the Tatamagouche Creamery beside the trail. The trail crosses the French River and Waugh River (both tidal), runs through Nelson Memorial Park, and passes by Patterson Wharf Park. The Tatamagouche Area Trails Association manages this trail on provincial crown property.
