Alice Walking Trail: The footing is good on the country roads, but hiking boots make walking easier on the abandoned Canadian National railway line. The walker descends into Alice, a compact and pretty village situated on the Indian river. The northern part of the walk is through rolling country-side, while the southern half is mainly through secondary-growth bush.

From Hwy 17 skirting around Pembroke, take Hwy. 58 and drive west and straight for 6.5 km until the very first bend in the road. Take the right turn onto Borne Rd and park by the Cemetery.

Walk down German Rd towards Hwy 58. Cross the bridge, then the highway onto Bucholtz Rd. Carry on down Bucholtz Rd crossing over the Indian River. Not far from Hwy 58, there is a cedar stump fence on your left.
•  After a couple of kilometres, turn right onto Sandy Beach Rd. Walk through bush for another two kilometres, turning right at Dabers Rd. Follow Dabers Rd across Hwy 58. Carry on past St. Peter’s Evangelical Lutheran Church and Cemetery. Traverse the bridge over the swift Indian River and walk on about 250 metres to Station Hill Rd. The abandoned Canadian National railway, now a snowmobile trail, crosses the road.
•  Turn right and walk 1½ km on the CN line (or alternatively walk along Borne Rd). Leave the railway line, on the right hand side. Walk along Borne Rd for a short distance, back to your vehicle.
