Charlottetown Area -Routes for Nature and Health

This project of the Charlottetown Area Development Corporation and city area municipalities involves the construction of nature routes and trails (45 km in length) through the greater Charlottetown area. The corridor is built along the abandoned rail line that runs from the city's waterfront, through Sherwood, Parkdale, past UPEI, the Charlottetown Mall, and will link up with the Province-wide Confederation Trail network. Eventually the project will consist of a network of routes that stretch from Riverside Drive past the Hillsborough Hospital through Hillsborough Park, past Wright's Creek, the airport, to the University lands and to the central corridor which will connect all of the other routes from Sherwood and Parkdale and along the way. On the West Royalty side, the plans call for the project to eventually stretch down the Maypoint Rd., to the federal government's Upton Farms and to the North River causeway area. Presently much of the existing trail is marked by distinctive "Routes for Nature and Health" signage. For information on trail development to date, contact one of our Provincial Visitor Information Centres.
