Welcome to the Tantramar Outdoor Club !

Year-round outdoor activities have always been a central purpose of the TOC. But the beating heart of the group is the embrace of winter and the bounty of snow which provides cross-country skiing and snowshoeing opportunities over the winter months. Our hope is that we leave the surrounding environments which we traverse as pristine as possible.

Trail use is currently the Snow Season. See maps on trail page below for clear guidlines on what activties are permited on what trails.
