Greenwich Dunes Trail is the perfect thing to do after touring in a car for far too long.

We stayed at The Inn at St. Peters and had been doing a lot of driving before our arrival. The Greenwich Dunes Trail was the perfect way to spend the day and avoid the car - for the most part. The trail is quite level, soft but not deep sand/loam/leaf mix - some is paved. The dunes are small and... More

I was just amazed at the red soil, the birds, wildflowers and grass that graced this park. I would highly recommend getting over to see this natural wonder.

We visited on a very rainy dreary day, but still got magnificent views of the coastline and red cliffs. Would love to visit again on a sunny day.

Tried to walk Bayshore Drive along the dunes, but bridge repairs meant the road was closed. We hiked the closed section and ended up getting drizzle. Drove east to Greenwich Dunes area of Prince Edward Island National Park. We hiked the Tlaqatik Trail in sunshine, but also wind! Great interp info along the way about settlers and families - open...

A great hike through meadows with lots of wildflowers. Next the woods which opened up to a lake with long floating bridge we crossed to reach the dunes. Climbed the dunes on steps and reached spectacular views.Another trail led to an area where you could see how they farmed mussels, very interesting. There is another area of the park that... More

We loved the park views and Anne sites. The park does an excellent job of giving information and providing experiences in a quiet way. The walks through Lovers Lane and the Haunted Woods are worth the time and we would definitely recommend the cemetery in Cavendish to see LM Montgomery's burial plot and the next site where she grew up...

Go to the cliffs' edges in late afternoon or at sunset and be party to a display of glory. That forever view of ocean-to-the-horizon, with the red sandstone cliffs pulsating in wonderful rusty red , and the Maritimes wind buffeting your face. Pow! It is humbling in its gorgeousness, and awesome on its splendour.

Our visit to Prince Edward Island National Park gave me the opportunity to enjoy one of my all-time favorite experiences – walking along a sandy, dune-backed, nearly deserted beach with the wind in my hair and the gentle pulse of the surf in my ears. I was in my Happy Place, and I hated to leave. Few places that we... More

A beautiful area. The Anne of Green Gables park is nicely done and admission is inexpensive. Also make sure you check out the unique red cliffs.

The views are what draw you here and the views of the wild ocean are first class. An easy place to navigate being pretty flat too.
