Take a leisurly walk through our Historical Trail on the original Internment camp site. The trail is located 14.5 km/9 miles West from Minto and 32 km/20 miles east from Fredericton on route 10.
The trail is open year round at no charge. You will need snowshoes or cross country skies in the winter.It is recommended to bring along insect repellent for May and June. The walk will take about 15 minutes.
The signage along the trail marks the locations of the original buildings. There are still visible signs of the camp remains including the road that formed an oval inside the camp. During the operation of the camp, truck loads of wood ashes from the stoves were dumped on the road and compacted into a hard base where little could grow. The cement footing where the mess hall stood and two cement manholes where you can see the pipes that carried water throughout the camp are clearly marked. Large rocks forming a circle were part of the grandstand. The 7.62m/25ft. high water tower base still stands and is visible from Route 10.( see enclosed photos) There are other signs of the original camp as you make your way along the trail.
Please do not litter, only take pictures and memories with you.
