The self-guiding trail explores mixed Acadian forest, old fields and foundation ruins on a "buttereau" (small hill) overlooking the Chéticamp River and Gulf of St. Lawrence. Wildflowers, trees and shrubs have invaded these pastures that were once tilled by the Acadian pioneers, making an ideal spot for birds and small mammals. Plaques commemorate former Acadian homesteads.
