The Dunk River trail, which is maintained by the local watershed group, is a delightful 3.5 km (7 km return) stroll along the picturesque Dunk River, just north of Kinkora in central PEI. The trail winds its way through several stands of 100-year old hemlock and yellow birch beside a fast moving river that feels more like it should be in Maine or New Brunswick than in PEI.
The river bank is steep in places, making walking the path a little tricky in the winter months. There were a number of sweepers lying across the river when we walked it – perhaps they’ll be gone after a good spring freshett!
