In the fall of 2019, Bryson Guptill hiked 435 miles of Prince Edward Island over 31 days. The island resident traversed green hills and farmland, chatted with strangers along red-dirt roads, and watched herons and cormorants swoop along the coast.
That trek with three friends sprouted an idea that became the Island Walk. This new 435-mile route circumnavigates the Canadian island province using a combination of existing trails, dirt roads, and public highways.
