1559 Seven Mile Rd Cardigan, Prince Edward Island Canada

The Boughton River Trail, located in eastern Prince Edward Island, is a moderate difficulty trail covering 8.9km of woodland.  Parking is conveniently available at the trailhead, which is located in the community of Bridgetown. This system has four trail loops providing opportunities for a shorter, or easier hike. Along the trail, a lookout section can be accessed that gives a view of the ‘drowned estuary’ of the Boughton River.  In this marshland area, bulrushes, cattails, and other marsh plants grow making it an ideal habitat to view redwing blackbirds.  This diverse woodland trail gives hikers the chance to pass through many distinct habitats. Hardwood and spruce stands, river flats, ravines, and grassy meadows are home to a variety of woodland animals and birds. Red squirrel, snowshoe hare, songbirds, and woodpeckers may make an appearance along the trail. Hikers may also notice traces of red fox, barred owl, and eastern coyote.  This trail is established entirely on private land and is designed to be completed by foot. There is no access for bikes or motorized vehicles.
