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.
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.
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.
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.
