Northam to Miscouche
21 km, 6 to 8 hours, rated easy to moderate. Flat terrain.
First, a quiet walk along county roads and fields, then a road walk along Grand River, followed by a red dirt road into Miscouche. In the fall, you might be lucky enough to catch crews harvesting potatoes!
Country roads, take me home, to the place I call home! If you need a fitting song to play while travelling on this section of the Island Walk, we recommend John Denver’s famous hit, ‘Take me home, Country Roads’ as that’s what you’ll be walking on!
Navigate your way through the back roads, and walk alongside fields, busy with potato farmers, planting, maintaining and harvesting their crop!
You’ll end the day in Miscouche, a small Acadian community, and you’ll be able to explore the St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, erected in 1892 and the Acadian Museum right next door. There is also a small grocery store with lots of options for baked goods and a hot cup of coffee!
