When we decided to bring our mountain bikes to PEI, I had no idea that the rails to trails system was this nice. Obviously I didn't do my homework. We biked 30 miles one day and 60 another. Beautiful scenery along the way. A perfect...More

We just spent a week biking along the Confederation Trail and if you enjoy this kind of cycle this is mecca. Over 400km of impeccably maintained, well signed, and picturesque trails across PEI. We rented bikes from Outer Limit Sports in Charlottetown and hit the...More

We rented bikes in St. Peter's Bay, and cycled to Morell and back. This is the section that worked for us, and we learned later that it is said to be the most beautiful part. It follows the southern coast of St Peter's Bay, where...More

After visiting PEI last year, I put this trip on my bucket list and I'm so glad I did. We started training in June, knowing we would be averaging 50 - 60 km a day and it was well worth it. We travelled with another...More

Just finished cycling the confederation trail and it is an underused attraction in PEI. This relatively easy biking/walking trail is a great way to see the beauty of the province. Whether you do it all or just a portion I am sure you will enjoy...More

What a community asset and yet it is treated like a secret! Tourism should really be promoting this trail system. Lots of people like to cycle now and would come just for this. You could bike the whole island or sections of it. You would...More

The paths were well kept and took us through some lush green fields, over various sized creeks, and cool forest areas. We met a trail guide while stopping for water, he gave us a biking guide and told us about the trail. It was neat...More

This is a lovely trail that runs the length of the Island! I wish I'd realized it was here when I was planning my trip so I could have planned to rent a bike and ride it a ways! I'll know for next time!
