What a thrill it was to be back on Prince Edward Island. Last time I visited this magnificent island dates back to my childhood. I had kept fond memories of the island of Anne of Green Gables (everyone can guess why…) so I was ecstatic to be back last month.
Prince Edward Island is filled with nature: forests, parks, beaches, farmland, etc. It’s an outdoor enthusiast’s dream!
The main trail that you can find from tip-to-tip on the island is the Confederation Trail. After PEI’s railway was abandoned in 1989, the island decided to transform the area into a walking and cycling trail during the summer and snowmobile trail in the winter.
What’s so great about the trail is its unique scenery. While running, you will see anything from rolling hills, villages, seascapes and also farms. This flat trail is 410 kms in length and is made of rolled stone dust.
I took the trail from Charlottetown at Fitzroy and Kensington Street, but there are many entrances around the island, such as Tignish, Souris, Georgetown, Montague, Murray River, etc.
My favorite part of my run on the island: coming across a field of horses. How special is that?
