Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:


In August 2000, Prince Edward Island (PEI) became the first province in Canada to complete its section of the Trans Canada Trail -- the "Confederation Trail".

The Confederation Trail (CT) traverses the entire province, passing through many communities and all classes of landscape. The tip-to-tip route from Tignish to Elmira totals 279 km, but 357 km of excellent rolled stone dust surface are available for use.

Branch trails extend into the heart of Charlottetown and to the waterside communities of Souris, Georgetown and Montague.

In its former life as a railway (abandoned in 1989), it created communities, shaped transportation and met all the challenges of Island terrain. As a continuous multi-purpose path from coast to coast of the province it accommodates walking, hiking, cycling, jogging and wheelchairs on a rolled stonedust surface. Travelers to the Island for over a century have enjoyed the pastoral landscape, woodlands and rivers between tiny Island communities.

The "Confederation Trail Cycling Guide" (visit link) will help you plan your cycling vacation on the CT. Included in the guide are accommodations which participate in the "Cyclists Welcome Program", which take the needs of cyclists into consideration and make their properties welcoming and easy for cyclists. You will need Acrobat Reader to view this document.

The CT is closed to ALL motorized vehicles with the exception of snow mobiles in specially designated sections -- you must hike or bike to find these cache placements. All cache placements are within 25 m of the Trail.


Please sign log sheets with initials only -- NO stamps or stickers!

If you complete the tip-to-tip CT (Tignish to Elmira), and would like to receive a "Tip-to-Tip Confederation Trail Certificate", e-mail or call Island Trails @ 902-583-2412.
