Jewellville Trail is a 14 km circular walk in the Madawaska Highlands, that passes through the hamlet of Rosenthal, home to German immigrant pioneers. Today, the names on the post boxes are a reminder of that heritage. The abundance of sugar maples makes this walk of special interest in the Fall.

How to get there
From Barry’s Bay, follow Hwy 62 south for 16 km. Just before Combermere, turn left onto Hwy 515 and continue on another 9 km to the village of Jewellville. Look out for the signpost indicating Jewellville Rd on your left. Fifty metres before Jewellville Rd, on the right, is a Ministry of Natural Resources (MNR) Work Station, composed of three white buildings. Park your car here.

•Walk 50 m and left onto Jewellville Rd, which heads up into the Madawaska Highlands.
•After 2 km, turn left onto the unpaved Upper Rosenthall Rd, which in places is skirted by mixed forest and else where by swamp.
•Turn right onto the unpaved Guiney Rd and follow it to the hamlet of Rosenthal. Walk straight on past the junction with Jewellville Rd for about 100 m, where you will find the Rosenthal Community Wesleyan Church, built 1911, and Cemetery. Retrace your steps, then turn left onto Jewellville Rd. This road is initially hilly, then runs over a 1 km plateau (at about 400 m above sea level). Stone fences skirt the road. There are views over the Madawaska Valley stretching out in front of you, as the road descends into Jewellville.
