The historic Mi'gmaq hiking trail is a 150-km single track hiking trail that follows the mighty Nepisiguit River from mountains to sea (from Mount Carleton Park in central New Brunswick to Daly Point Nature Reserve in Bathurst). Tent platforms and teepees have been built for the use of hikers (available for booking here under Backcountry).
This is a rugged, challenging trail with no cellular service coverage for most of its length. You might encounter windfalls, floodings or other dangerous conditions – hike at your own risk! Multi-day or thru hikers must register with the trail organization at least one week before their departure.
To enjoy this wilderness trail safely, make sure to check out this guide and be prepared before going.
