The Forest Hill Wildlife Management Area is currently the only publicly-funded trail system on PEI that allows equestrian access. PEI Trail Riders is seeking to upgrade equestrian facilities and to expand trails.
Equestrians have been seeking access to the multi-user Confederation Trail - part of the Trans Canada Trail - from the time of its initial planning stages in the late 1980s and early 1990s. A pilot project exploring the viability of equestrians as shared took place on three specific segments of the trail from Aug 15 to Nov 15, 2021.
The PEI ATV Federation manages province-wide ATV trails through agreements with private landowners. With the assistance of the Federation, PEI Trail Riders is exploring the possibility of sharing the trails through similar agreements with landowners.
Approximately 12% of PEI land is publicly-owned. PEI Trail Riders is seeking input on suitable tracts of land, especially Provincial Forest Land, that would be candidates for development of new equestrian-friendly, shared-use trails.!
