Rode our bikes from Montague to Georgetown and back (about 20 km), while vacationing on PEI. Really enjoyed it! Bring bug repellent for those times you take a break, the mosquitos can be vicious.

Great for biking and or walking. Want a challenge try and do the whole thing and make it an adventure. Really not much more than a 2% across the whole thing. Worth a look at any section.

We biked just a small sample of the Confederation Trail. One segment was from Kesington to Summerside. The trail is the former rail line which means sweeping curves and subtle climbs and declines. In fact they are so subtle I first thought there was something...More

One of the nicest ways to explore PEI is by bike and the Confederation Trail is perfect for that purpose. It's an old rail trail converted for biking and hiking and it goes the full length of the island. It's a gravel trail but it...More

We followed the marked foot trail to experience the history. Interesting and informative. A must for all Canadians. Too bad the building was closed for renovation.
