As the birthplace of Confederation, Prince Edward Island has a rich history of making connections. Today, many walkers, hikers and cyclists seek another kind of connection along the Confederation Trail, the island’s 440-kilometre section of the Trans Canada Trail.
Not sure where to start? Here are our Featured Hikes along the Trans Canada Trail in PEI.
PEI’s tip-to-tip trail offers beautiful rolling scenery, quaint villages, hardwood groves and stunning seascapes. This flat, well-serviced rail trail is optimal for cyclists, hikers and snowmobilers of all fitness levels. Explore PEI’s picturesque scenery, cultural and musical traditions, culinary delights and Canadian heritage along your route, with access points to several communities along the way.
The main trail starts in Tignish and ends in Elmira. From the main trail, choose one of several branch trails that run into the heart of Charlottetown and to the waterside communities of Souris, Georgetown, Montague, Wood Islands, Murray River and Murray Harbour, plus a link to the Confederation Bridge in Borden-Carleton. Find out more on the Trail’s cycling guide and website. Note that snowshoeing and cross-country skiing are not permitted on the Trail in the winter months unless otherwise noted.
