This trail follows the The Nepisiguit River along a several thousand year old seasonal hunting route of aboriginals. Although the information currently online is sparse, work is ongoing for a web redesign. In the meantime, the Sentier Nepisiguit Mi’gmaq Trail Facebook Group is extremely active and should for the time being be the first stop for anyone looking for current info.
According to information supplied by members of that group; As of Fall 2016 approximately half of the 140 km trail is cut and marked starting from the east, with the rest being a route that is still in active development. Currently the western half is best suited to the determined hiker, requiring some navigation and bushwhacking.
