Island Trails

Welcome to Island Trails – Main Website

No matter what interests you as a trail user, Prince Edward Island has something for you. You may choose to spend an afternoon exploring nature on a woodland hike, or go on a multi-day cycling trip.This site will assist you in planning your PEI experience.

If it’s cycling, you may follow the link to the Confederation Trail, a linear park running from tip-to tip through the entire province. Or, you can find “mountain” biking at our Gairloch Road and other woodland trails.

For day hiking information, go to the descriptions of our seven Major Woodland Trails, or the inventory of Other Hiking Trails. Both lists include directions, and GPS coordinates.

Island Trails also sponsors and promotes cycling and hiking events on all trails. Look for news of recent and upcoming activities on this site.

The Confederation Trail was developed on abandoned railway lines and takes you into wetlands and hardwood groves, through quaint villages and along sparkling rivers.

In August, 2000, Prince Edward Island became the first province in Canada to complete its section of the Trans Canada Trail. Read More >>

Mountain biking is available on selected Trails. Please refer to trail descriptors of individual trail for details.
