June 02, 2007, was International Trails Day and a perfect opportunity to host the Summerside – Wellington portion of the Tip-to-Tip series. I videotaped and edited a profile of the day’s activity, which you can watch on YouTube (higher resolution will be available later). Take a 10-minute break, sit back and enjoy…or, better yet, get out on YOUR LOCAL TRAIL and become a part of the experience!

In the year 2000 PEI became the first province in Canada to complete its section of the Trans Canada Trail, known in the province as the Confederation Trail. Visit Island Trails to find out more about this scenic 400-km trail network on the “gentle Island”.
