Driving Directions & Map

Carroll's Corner is a quiet, friendly community in rural Nova Scotia Canada.  The area offers peaceful living in a clean environment, surrounded by private homes and family farms among rolling hills and pastures. 

But the peaceful appearance can be deceptive; our Community Centre is busy every day & night of the week, providing an important central location for activities appealing to all ages and walks of life.  Teens, adults, seniors and families, all make the Recreation Centre the true heart of our community!

The Mastodon Trail

Have you 'hit the trail yet'?  Over the past several years, Carroll's Corner Community Centre, in partnership with HRM's Trail Association and National Gypsum, have developed the first stage of a multi-purpose trail, accessable from the back of the soccer field.  Easy walking and plenty of shade make it an attractive woodland escape from the bustle of the hall and playing fields.  Several steepish inclines provide a bit of a workout, combined with gentler stretches where you can slow the pace down and enjoy the surrounding sights and sounds of nature.  Wild berries, flowers and birds abound. The trail is well groomed and surfaced with a fine grade gravel.  Birdwatchers, dog walkers, bicyclers, horseback riders, skiers & snowshoers are all welcome and will find their own little piece of heaven.  The only restriction is that the trail is is open to non-motorized traffic only.  Also please pick up after your pet, and 'pack out your trash'. 

A new guide has recently been produced, courtesy of Martha E. Grantham, and is available free of charge at the hall.  New and old visitors to the trail will appreciate this booklet which details some of the natural features you may see along the way, as well as a bit of background on the story of the Carroll's Corner own mastodon.  It will help you identify some of the local flora and signs of our wildlife friends as well.

 

Summer 2013 - see the display in the Hall for detailed info on our Trail System project.
