Prince Edward Island
Waiting for cooler weather to arrive in Florida, we headed north to Prince Edward Island in Canada's Maritime Provinces. Scroll down or click on the link below for more details:
Confederation Trail: Prince Edward Island is an idyllic location, and the Confederation Trail on an abandoned Prince Edward Island Railway railbed covers 260 miles east-west across the island, plus several trail extensions. When the railroad was abandoned in 1989, the provincial government purchased the entire right-of-way and developed the trail. The Confederation Trail comprises a portion of the Trans Canada Trail, which when completed will run 15,000 miles from the Atlantic to the Pacific to the Arctic Oceans.
Although unpaved, it is rideable on a rolled stone dust surface, running through forests and farmland, on scenic bridges over rivers, and through small towns. The trail has mileposts, interpretive signs, benches, picnic tables, shelters, and scenic look-outs. Long stretches run through rural areas with little shade, but other sections - particularly near the water (rivers and bays) - are more scenic.
