If you’re looking for a weekend activity in the outdoors, a winter walk in the woods at the Brookvale Demonstration Woodlot can’t be beat. The main trail is groomed and very walkable, and the trail is just the right length.
The woodlot is just northeast of Brookvale Ski Park, on the opposite side of the road. It’s about 35 minutes drive from either Charlottetown or Summerside.
The road into the parking lot isn’t plowed, so you need to park on Rte. 13 and walk in (groomed as well). Just walk up the entrance road until you get to the end of the trail—you’ll see the sign—and then walk the trail backwards to the trailhead. Then turn around and walk back out. At a leisurely pace it will take you about 40 minutes.
