Confederation Trail Workshops

Thank you for your feedback. The survey period has ended. A summary of the views expressed by survey respondents will be available in early 2024.

The Confederation Trail was developed on abandoned railway beds and travels across the Island, past wetlands and through hardwood groves, through quaint towns, and along sparkling rivers. Prince Edward Island’s portion of the Trans Canada Trail was the first to be completed in August 2000.

Since then, our Island’s communities have been working to add spur connections and to provide upgraded amenities to the trail. In the summer season, activity on the Confederation Trail is limited to walking, hiking, running, and cycling and is accessible to wheelchairs.

During the colder months, it is turned over exclusively to snowmobile use. In addition to these seasonal trail uses, alternative trails for equestrians have been developed in both the western and eastern areas of the Island.

Online Survey

Residents had opportunity to share feedback in an online survey on the Confederation Trail until December 1, 2023.


The Department of Transportation and Infrastructure invited the community to participate in workshops to help shape policy decisions concerning the use of the Confederation Trail.

The primary focus of the workshops were to facilitate user engagement by providing feedback and suggestions with large maps at designated tables to foster discussions among participants.
