Walking Crout's Way

September 25, 2016, 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Join us for this very Special Event as archaeologist Bill Gilbert retraces the steps of Henry Crout's expedition from Cupids Cove to Hopeall in Trinity Bay in September of 1612.

The event will begin at 9:00 am at the Cupid's Cove Plantation Provincial Historic Site with a tour of the ongoing archaeological excavation. From there participants will be transported to a section of Crout's Way where Bill Gilbert will lead a hike along part of the route followed by Crout and his companions 404 years ago. The hike will last approximately five hours including a lunch break and other stops along the way. Transportation will be provided back to the Cupids Cove Plantation.

Space is limited for this event and all who wish to participate are required to book in advance.

The hike will cross some rough terrain and is of a moderate nature. As such it is not suitable for anyone with mobility issues or medical conditions that would preclude physical activity. Participants should bring all required items for a hike of this nature; food, water, sunscreen; bug repellent, appropriate clothing and footwear. The hike will pass through some wet areas so having waterproof footwear is a must.

This event is weather dependent
