Confederation Trail

Hiking in Melville

The 449 kilometres of rolled stone dust trail has gentle gradients which never exceed 2% (up or down). This Island wide exploration corridor is ideal for visitors of all fitness levels. The Main Trail starts in Tignish at kilometre 0 and ends in Elmira at kilometre 273. Branch trails extend into the heart of Charlottetown and many small towns and communities from tip to tip including a stop at the Confederation Bridge. You will find a convenient selection of accommodations, food and services a short distance from the trail. Please be advise that some road travel may be required. For safety concerns please check with the accommodation providers regarding distance.

The Confederation Trail is also a geocaching hotspot with over 1600 geocache sites along the route. Also, PEI's 110 kilometre portion of the International Appalachian Trail begins in Borden-Carleton, ending at Wood Islands ferry terminal.

Prince Edward Island is rich in picturesque scenery, cultural and musical talent, culinary delights and Canadian heritage. This wonderful piece of Canada has countless adventures to offer and is best explored by bicycle or foot.
