Miminegash to Christopher Cross
20 km, 6 to 8 hours, rated easy to moderate. Mostly flat, but some hills near Christopher Cross.
Road walking with great views of the Northumberland Strait, Skinner’s Pond, and lobster boats setting traps.
Start your travels in Miminegash, a community known for the traditional gathering of Irish Moss. If you have some extra time to spend, explore the story of the Moss at the Interpretive Centre in Miminegash. We recommend having a packed lunch for this section of the Island Walk.
Once you start your travels, you will experience magnificent views of the Northumberland Strait which, depending on the time of year will be speckled with lobster boats. These sensational views will remind you why you decided to journey to the Island Walk in the first place.
As you continue to Christopher Cross, you will come upon a new Island gem with a lot of history. The new Stompin’ Tom Centre built to honor PEI musician Stompin’ Tom Connors in Skinner’s Pond. The centre features a Gift Shop, Food Service, and Entertainment Space and Exhibits. Check out their website as they host events, like daily entertainment and Friday evening happy hours!
Stompin’ Tom Connors grew up in poverty. He called Skinner’s Pond home for many years before going on to win six Juno awards and releasing 20 albums of his unique country music. His music and life are celebrated at the Stompin’ Tom Centre in Skinner’s Pond.
