Ancient Trails

An ancient trail ran through Grand Bay-Westfield.

An ancient Maliseet trail existed from the Bay of Fundy up through the Musquash, Loch Alva to Robin Hood Lake and the Nerepis River.  This early survey by Charles Whitney was part of the WF Ganong collection located at the NB Museum in Saint John. The trail was recently mapped by Robert Doyle. Note how the portages lead to Robin Hood lake and then north to Nerepis.
