Notice to all hikers regarding Teepee and Platform reservations.


After much review, the Sentier Nepisiguit Mi’gmaq Tail (SNMT) organization has decided all campsites will be free to hikers on a first come first serve basis. This includes all teepees, platforms and shelters. This will take effect immediately upon the opening of the SNMT starting June 1, 2022.

Due to this decision, the SNMT will no longer be using the Parks NB online reservation system.

Retired Forester recognized for his efforts in establishing the Sentier Nepisiguit Mi’gmaq Trail.


On Saturday June 19, Rod O’Connell was recognized with a beautiful plaque for his role in the recommissioning of the Sentier Nepisiguit Mi’gmaq Trail among his colleagues from the Maritime College of Forest Technology campus Bathurst and the grass roots volunteers of the trail organization. Rod O’Connell was the founding director of the francophone campus of the Maritime Forest Ranger School and in his retirement sits as the President of the Sentier Nepisiguit Mi’gmaq Trail organization.


The Plaque with a dedication to Rod O’Connell was placed on the trail at one of his favourite spots which has been officially named Rod O’Connell Lookout. The lookout is a breathtaking view of the river high on a ridge on section I-J which can be located on the trail map.


The Plaque reads,


Rod O’Connell was the founding director of the francophone campus of the Maritime Forest Ranger School.


Rod, through his vision, passion and dedication was a major inspiration in the realization of the Nepisiguit Mi’gmaq Trail.
