Destination Trails

Sentiers incontournables

The Confederation Trail is Prince Edward Island’s portion of the Trans Canada Trail. The TCT began in 1992 as a legacy project of Canada’s 125th Anniversary. Over the past 24 years, this visionary idea has grown into 16,500 kilometres of connected Trail. In PEI the dedication and commitment of countless volunteers and the provincial government resulted in our province being the first in the country to complete the Trail. With 435 kilometres of rolled stone dust surface, it is a world class cycling and walking venue.

Le Sentier de la Confédération constitue la portion insulaire du Sentier transcanadien, un projet durable découlant du 125e anniversaire du Canada en 1992. Au cours des 24 dernières années, cette idée visionnaire a pris la forme de 16 500 km de sentiers. Grâce au dévouement et au travail acharné de nombreux bénévoles et du gouvernement provincial, l’Île-duPrince-Édouard est devenue la première province à terminer sa section du Sentier transcanadien. Les 435 km de sentiers recouverts de poussière de pierre offrent une piste de première qualité aux randonneurs et aux cyclistes de l’Île.

Island Trails promotes non-motorized trail use throughout PEI. It was primarily responsible for the recent development and enhancement of 7 “Destination Trails.” It is also the non-profit group which promoted the initial transformation of the old rail bed to the current Confederation Trail. This work has evolved into collaboration with the Trans Canada Trail and the Provincial Government departments of Tourism and Transportation to develop the trail system. Details, including maps on these and many other of PEI’s trails can be found at www.islandtrails.ca and www.openstreetmap.org/relation/5687567. Destination Trails 1. North Camp Nature Trail – 3.5 km.

The Confederation Trail has 1800 geocaches placed along the 435 kilometers of the trail. There are over 5189 geocaches on P.E.I.

2016 Confederation Trail Guide


International Appalachian Trail Info The Confederation Trail is the connector trail for North America’s section of the International Appalachian Trail (IAT) in PEI. From Borden Carleton, travel east via the Confederation Trail until you arrive at Royalty Junction, just outside of Charlottetown. You then have two options:

Sentier international des Appalaches (SIA) Le Sentier de la Confédération sert de raccordement dans la région nord-américaine du Sentier international des Appalaches. À partir de Borden-Carleton, les randonneurs suivent le sentier vers l’est, puis ont deux options lorsqu’ils arrivent à Royalty Junction, tout près de Charlottetown.

1. Stay on the main Confederation Trail to Mt. Stewart. Next, in Mt. Stewart veer right on the branch trail marked for Georgetown from there follow the IAT markers to Pisquid and off the Trail onto back roads. This route leads to the Dromore Woodland Trails, Prince Edward Island’s official designated section of the IAT. A back-road returns the hiker to an adjoining branch trail that leads to Wood Islands where you can catch the ferry to Nova Scotia.

1. Le sentier principal se rend jusqu’à Mount Stewart. Ensuite, la signalisation du SIA dirige les randonneurs en direction de Georgetown (embranchement de droite), puis jusqu’à Pisquid en empruntant des routes de campagne. Ce trajet passe par les sentiers boisés de Dromore, la section désignée du SIA à l’Île-du-Prince-Édouard. Une route mène ensuite à une autre partie du sentier qui se rend jusqu’à Wood Islands, où les randonneurs peuvent prendre le traversier vers la Nouvelle-Écosse.

2. The second option is to .hike the 9 kilometre trail spur line to Charlottetown (veer right at the Royalty Junction intersection). This route leaves the city via the Hillsborough Bridge, which crosses the designated Heritage Hillsborough River to Stratford. The Stratford Trail spur continues east for 58 kilometers to Wood Islands and the Northumberland Ferry.

2016 Confederation Trail Guide

2. Le Sentier de la Confédération comprend une ligne secondaire de 9 kilomètres autour de la ville de Charlottetown (vers la droite à l’intersection Royalty Junction). Ce tronçon prend fin sur le pont Hillsborough qui enjambe l’historique rivière Hillsborough et mène vers Stratford. De Stratford, le sentier fait 58 kilomètres jusqu’au traversier de Wood Islands.
