This is a fantastic trail!! It is well maintained and used quite a bit by the locals if the level of activity on a Tues morning is any indication. This is an old rail bed that goes by farms, the inlets, through the forest and back to the ocean on the other side. It is very picturesque and well worth the time to bike or hike on the trail.

As a result of being an old rail bed, the trail never goes above a 3% grade. The section we were on didn't get higher than 1.5%. Gotta love Strava!

I have been taking advantage of the confederation trail annually while on vacation for the last five years. I have ridden every trail east of Wellington and have found the trails to be in excellent condition. Mostly hard packed with some soft spots, I ride a cross bike with 700x34 tires which I find works well. My rides are typically 100km and this is possible as the trails are well maintained. Most of the bikes I see on the trails are mountain bikes which are not necessary. As a previous rail bed any hills are very gradual and turns are long and sweeping.

My favorite parts of the trail are Morell to St Peters and the Kensington area. The trail cuts right thru the centre of Kensington with lots of options for taking a break.

If you are planning a trip the wind can be very favourable if you are riding west to east so plan accordingly.

The trail has lots of rest areas with covered picnic tables and a few washrooms along the trail. This year I wasn't bothered at all by mosquitos however bring along some mosquito repellent as there have been previous years where they have been annoying.

Enjoy this idyllic trail to see parts of PEI that you miss when driving.

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.

There is a new campground along the trail in Tracadie, P.E.I..
This is the campground that was closed for 7 yrs but has just reopened. The host was great the sites were nice and there was an inside room to sit and relax with a full kitchen and clean washrooms. The rate was reasonable at $20 a night. Check it out, and you will love it as much as I did. Happy cycling to all along the Conferation Trail.

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.
