Sir Andrew MacPhail
Location: Off Rte. 1, Trans Canada Hwy. Orwell
This 1.4 km nature trail leads from the MacPhail house down the lane and into a deep valley bordered by large eastern hemlock, yellow birch, eastern white pines and maples. Two other trails are also located near the Sir Andrew MacPhail Homestead. This is a great place for bird watchers and they offer interpretive walks or you might want to attend one of the night owl walks throughout the summer season.
Lord Selkirk Trail
Location: Lord Selkirk Provincial Park, Off Rte. 1
A nature trail 1.5-km long has been constructed and follows the perimeter of the golf course. There is an abundance of wildlife along the trail as sections of the woods have bird's nests and areas to attract small animals constructed. Half way around the trail a lookout deck and rest area has been constructed along the side of a 150' cliff to give a view of Orwell Bay.
Jack's Road
Location: Near the south shore and Wood Islands area of PEI, this road runs from Rte.1 in Flat River to Rte. 207 for a distance of 4.1 km.
A narrow, winding trail where time seems to stand still, this rustic passage is a gentle reminder of simpler times past. A border of hardwoods such as sugar maple, beech and birch creates leafy arches. Stately hemlocks appear as one rounds a bend, adding dimension and depth to the winding red road. Mosses form a textured carpet under the tree cover and only the trilling of songbirds and the trickling of nearby streams break the pervading silence. Muskrats, hares and red fox find this secluded wood an ideal location in which to feed and raise their families.

In the early 1900’s Jack MacPherson owned a large farm to the north of the road. Subsequently the locals called the road “Jack’s Road” as they used it to travel to his place and to this day it still maintains the name.
