Questions - PEI - The Island Trail, Summer 2023

Have any of you done the Island Trail around PEI? We read an article in Travel & Leisure and now would love to look into it for July/August.

If anyone has tips on this walk - logistics, lodging, ideas for great food or things to see and experience, we would love it.

PEI has friendly locals, amazing seafood ie lobster, muscles, oysters, cod, not crowded even in the summer. Endless red sand beaches and cliffs, amazing folk music, green potato fields, bike and walking trails the entire length of the island, warm water via the Gulf Steam to swim in the ocean. Anne of Green Gables if you have kids. Best time to visit is June to September. You can get onto the island via a 8 mile long bridge or a 2 hour ferry from Nova Scotia. The largest city is Charlottetown about 50 k but an island population of 150k. But get out and explore the countryside itís amazing.

As far as what to do on the island do you see my post, if not check it out.

Halifax and PEI

We have walked sections of the Confederation trail and walks in the National Parks, see above link. PEI

If you need more information let us know.

Weespxx, I've had this site bookmarked for several months, as my wife and I are pretty avid hikers. It looks like a good starting point:


It includes a reference to a guidebook:
