Cardigan River Trail

Cardigan River Trail

This new 6km walking and cycling trail is located behind the ball diamond on the western outskirts of Cardigan.  The trail was built over the summer months by master trail builder Albert Flavell with support from Cycling PEI and Transportation Minister Steven Myers.  The trail is undulating, smooth and fast, with lots of twists and turns – mountain bikers love it, but it’s also fun to walk in the summer and winter months.  If you’re biking or walking in the spring or winter, please respect the need to keep the trail smooth and fast – no walking when the snow is soft or the trail is muddy!  The trail is suitable for snowshoes when the snow is deep, and the trail is being groomed by a SnowDog when conditions permit.  Thanks to Cycling PEI for taking the initiative to develop and maintain this trail!

There are two excellent vistas of Cardigan village and the Cardigan River – one near the beginning of the trail and one a little later on.  Enjoy this new biking and hiking trail on PEI!
