Mission and History


The Sentier Nepisiguit Mi’gmaq Trail Association was established to offer a wilderness hiking experience in Northern New Brunswick's Nepisiguit River Watershed through the development of the Sentier Nepisiguit Mi’gmaq Trail (SNMT). The trail serves to highlight the area's rich cultural heritage, encourage physical activity, promote sustainable tourism and preserve the natural environment.


For thousands of years, the Mi’gmaq people used the Nepisiguit River and adjoining lands to journey from their summer fishing encampments along the Bay of Chaleur to their winter moose and caribou hunting grounds deep in the province's interior. The Sentier Nepisiguit Mi’gmaq Trail is a symbolic representation of this migration route. It is a single-track hiking trail that runs parallel to the Nepisiguit River for 150 km from its estuary in Bathurst, NB to its origins in the Appalachian Mountains of Mount Carleton Provincial Park.
