біля Riverhead, Newfoundland (Canada)
The route leads through bog, marsh, rivers, tuckamore, barrens and forests. There are two large river fords. In the wooded areas, the old track that was supposedly previously used to deliver mail by horseback across the peninsula is overgrown badly and very difficult to follow, particularly in the descent along Northwest Brook.
This is a wilderness route. No markings, no cutting, no development exists. Navigation aids required. All necessary precautions need to be taken while hiking this area.
At 12.3km this track turns east to avoid a river. Best to go west @ this point to stick closer to the traditional route (as can be clearly seen on satellite imagery). This track does not get back on route for a few kilometers after this point. That was a mistake.
An Entry Permit is required to enter the Avalon Wilderness Reserve, available at no cost from the Gov. of NL.
