Since this word is made up of a single kanji, it should use the kun'yomi reading. When learning the kanji, you didn't learn that reading, so here's a mnemonic to help you with this word:
You're walking down the road. On the road, you bump into your friend, Mitch (みち). Imagine saying hello, then continuing down the road. What's weird is you're both walking down a paved road with cars on it. Seems dangerous, but you and Mitch, you know what you're doing.
If you don't know anyone named Mitch, think of a famous Mitch or a Mitch you've made up.
A man is stopping by a police box for directions.
They say a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, right?
Drive down this road for about twenty minutes and you’ll come to the place where an unidentified creature was spotted.
