This trail was build by Paul Jenkins, the land owner, on land owned by the family. One loop is well developed, while the other is more of a concept trail that needs traffic to break it in. *this happened during a recent October DownEaster mtn bike race)
The single track offers few views (red loop has old abandoned cars), but is a nice option for this area of the province. In the fall, the color contrast between the trail and the greenery was breathtaking.
I marked this moderate, but because of the lack of trail development, it is a hard slog in traveling through the moss. Blue and red ribbons define the routes. The Red route is easier and flowy, while the blue trail with its bridges and wheel traps is the more difficult.

UpsideI just rode the trail after the 2nd annual downeaster race. The trail is much faster and smoother then previously. Even the blue trail is much easier, however still presents a technical challenge to riders Downside40 minutes east of charlottetown

UpsideThere are two 5 km loops - a red "easy" loop and a blue "difficult" loop. A beginner rider can handle the red loop and there is lots of variation. Doing the blue loop (which is off the red, so it's like doing the red +blue) is more of a challenge. There are a couple of boardwalks and a bridge on the blue loop due to some wet areas. The trail is well marked with a combination of ribbons, signs, wooden markers, and cut off trees (about 3 feet tall). This trail is designed for mountain biking but is great for snowshoeing as well due to the great markings, and of course hiking. DownsideThere is not a lot of elevation, this trail is mostly throughout forest and some old farming land that has grown over. CommentIt's an enjoyable trail for any level of rider, there have been some very beginner riders out on the red loop and have been able to complete it. The trail is quite pretty and the blackberries in the summer are great!
