Let your journey begin. The Confederation Trail runs tip-to-tip across Prince Edward Island and is best explored on foot or bicycle. Built on the decommissioned railway line, the main trail is 273 kilometers from west to east – Tignish to Elmira. Branch trails run through small towns and communities, including the heart of Charlottetown. The gradients along this rolled stone dust trail never exceed two percent making it suitable for all fitness levels. In summer and early fall, equestrians now have access to some portions of the trail. Along the way, you’ll find accommodation, food and service options a short distance from the trail. Some road travel may be required; please check with service providers about distance and any concerns about getting to your destination safely.
