Petain in winter

Petain Station - West Chezzetcook
Replica station built as an Interpretative Centre and trailhead as part of the Rails to Trails initiative by the West Chezzetcook/Grand Desert Community Interest Group. The Blueberry Run is part of the Trans Canada Trail.

As a result of the damage from Hurricane Juan and extensive vandalism  the trail has been closed and has until further notice been taken over by the Department of Natural Resources.They are permitting heavy logging vehicles to use sections of the trail as a forestry road to access private lots  that are being clear cut.

The photos show the station before the vandalism and hurricane.

For more information contact Roger Belanger who kindly notified us about this project.
