TRIP DESCRIPTION

Prince Edward Island’s Confederation Trail follows the abandoned rail bed through PEI’s fabulous pastoral landscapes. Originally constructed by a contractor who was paid by the mile, it follows an unusually circuitous route for 280km (174 miles) through many communities whose existence is mainly due to the old railroad.

The cycling is relatively easy on flat and smooth, well-maintained crushed stone surfaces, and the distances are moderate. You will have many opportunities to leave the trail and explore surrounding towns and villages, and will be delighted by the abundance of charming cafés, restaurants, and galleries along some sections of this idyllic ride.
