There is a newer trail in our city which my husband and I hadn’t walked so one morning last week, we headed to the Rotary Friendship Park for the first time. The park, on east side of town, is as the name implies, supported by the local Rotary Club. It was constructed and is maintained for walkers, bikers and mountain bikers.
The park has trails which go through forested areas and alongside fields, many in straight line paths.
However, the mountain bike trails take you off these paths, up hills, down valleys and over boulders, an unusual sight in the woods of Prince Edward Island.
Since it was an early weekday morning, we took a chance there weren’t any mountain bikers on a trail with an expert skill designation. It was a trail of hills and valleys,
steep turns, boulders to manoeuvre around or over.
The hills were a challenge but fun too.
We also walked some of the novice trails.
There are many trees down in this park, probably victims of Dorian like so many other trees around the island. Work is underway to clean up some trees which could be a danger in the future.
This park will be fun to explore during the various seasons and to watch the mountain bikers as they pursue the trails of various levels of difficulty.
