Hiking & Biking


PEI offers many ways to experience the Island on foot, by bicycle or on the water. The Island is home to the Confederation Trail, a tip-to-tip hiking and biking trail system developed out of the old abandoned railway lines. Taking you through wetlands, hardwood groves, quaint villages and along sparkling rivers – you’ll enjoy sights and sounds only available by foot or by bicycle. We are the closest campground for hikers and bikers exiting the Confederation Trail at Hunter River (easy day trips to the Cavendish-Brackley portions of the PEI National Park from here). Once settled at the campground we offer transportation to and from the Village of New Glasgow for our cyclists to enjoy a well deserved meal at one of our great restaurants.

From the campground quiet trails and clay roads with little traffic offer peaceful strolls or strenuous hikes for the more serious walker with wonderful views of the area. If you need a specific distance to walk or run we can help you with that as well.

Rather be on the water? You can take in the sights on a kayak or paddle board with the help of a guide. Rather be your own guide? We have a canoe and kayaks available for rent at the office that can be delivered to either Campbell’s Pond or Glasgow River.
