Sammy Says: "While not restricted to the Maliseet Trail, this section is a wonderful read and contains the Paddler's Anthem for New Brunswick."
"...the Province is everywhere intersected by rivers readily navigable by their light canoes. Indeed, I doubt if anywhere else in the world is an equal extent of territory so completely watered by navigable streams, or whether in any other country canoe navigation was ever brought to such a pitch of perfection, or so exclusively relied upon for locomotion" ~WF Ganong, 1899.
