Cavendish is one of the most popular spots to visit in Prince Edward Island National Park, owing its connections to L.M. Montgomery, red sandstone cliffs, great beach, and scenic trails. Much of the 12 km of trails in this area are great for running. Note: Admission charge.
Some of our favorite running spots in Cavendish:
Cavendish Dunelands Trail. 2.3 km through gorgeous dunes. Start at the Oceanview Lookoff or Cavendish Beach.
Homestead Trail. One of our favorite running spots on PEI., A little more rugged and popular with cyclists. Passes through forest and farmland along the shores of New London Bay. Loops of 6 km and 8 km. BLUE trail in image. There are bathrooms, a snack shop and access to the beach.
Cavendish Beach. Popular beach, can be runnable depending on conditions.
Gulf Shore Way. Paved, multi-use trail of up to 10 km toward Noth Rustico. See our separate route.
