Route Six
 
Contact: Greg Nix, President

Trail Highlights:

Our trails are connected by The Trans Canada Trail from Oxford to Tatamagouche (Trail 260), serving the local communities of Oxford, Pugwash, Wallace and Wentworth, including Angevine Lake.  Link Trails connect the North Shore/Sunrise Trail area to the Cobequid Mountains and hundreds of kilometers of pristine snowmobiling maintained by our partner clubs!  Highlights on the Route Six system include the Wallace Bridge Historic Site.  This spectacular 440 foot Bridge was constructed in 1889. One hundred feet of the bridge was designed to swing out of the way to allow masted schooners to continue up the river.  Another highlight is that our trails are groomed, and signed into: 10 Food Service/Restaurants, 6 Gas Stations, 6 Convenience Stores, 2 Motels, many airbnb’s, and 2 Snowmobile Repair Shops,  Length of Trail System:  140 kilometers
