Taking it Easy

P.E.I.’s easy-going Confederation Trail is a boon for leisurely hikers and cyclists, linking wonderful sites from historic Charlottetown to scenic coasts teeming with wildlife

There’s no pressure to perform in Prince Edward Island. This scenic isle may be Canada’s smallest province, but it was the first to complete its section of one of the longest recreational playgrounds anywhere — the Trans Canada Trail. Fairly flat, it’s made for hikers and cyclists to linger en route at wonderful sites along the way.

Visitors are discovering P.E.I.’s bucolic charms by hiking and biking a former rail bed, now called the Confederation Trail, that runs for some 280 kilometres from Elmira in the east to Tignish in the west. Cafés, shops and B&Bs have sprung up to cater to visitors as they follow the route along the coast, through villages and across farm fields.
