Trans Canada Trail (Tatamagouche and Area)
The east-west portion of the Trans Canada Trail (TCT) through Colchester County follows the former railway line along the North Shore. 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. This trail is continuous with rail trail sections in Pictou County and Cumberland County.
A north-south route of the Trans Canada Trail is in the planning stage and will eventually extend from Tatamagouche, through Truro, to Halifax Regional Municipality.
