Hiking Trails of PEI Book


If you start the trail at the first parking area you will cross a bridge to the other parking area at Anderson's Pond. The trail starts at a fishing shelter on the stream. A wheelchair accessable boardwalk goes along the stream from the shelter to the parking area at the Watershed Cooperative.

Mooneys Pond Lookout

In front of the Watershed Cooperative the trail crosses a dam and then enters the woods. The trail crosses a bridge and then travels through the woods along the pond. It passes several benches and a lookout platform overlooking the pond.

Near the back of the pond there is a long bridge that crosses the pond. Returning on the other side you will cross a bridge and several more lookout platforms.



From route 2 take the exit to Mount Stewart. Drive for 1 kilometre and just after you cross a bridge turn right towards Pisquid. Drive for 11 kilometres and you will find three entrances to the trail. The first two parking areas access Anderson's Pond and the third one is the parking area for Mooney's Pond and the Morrell River Watershed Cooperative.
