+Olewaif Posted December 2, 2011 Share Posted December 2, 2011 The Confederation Trail Cache Project ( CTCP) has resulted so far in 1,177 geocaches placed and released along the C.T. in Prince Edward Island, .Canada. The trail is so far over 240 Kms. long and exists along the old railbeds ( the Railroad was discontinued on ' the Island " in the late '80's ). This trail is a bike/hike only trail and thus is NOT like the ET power trail, in that you can NOT expect 400+ caches per day. Instead you might reasonably score about a hundred caches a day. The CTCP was created by a dedicated group of PEI cachers using the 'convenience name' of ' geowhacker. This 'power trail' is already attracting interest from cachers near and far. The group winds through scenic and relatively easy to navigate trail from one end of the province to the other. All caches are within 20 meters of the trail and are usually fairly easy finds. There is still room for more caches on some of the old railroad spur lines and it is likely that by the time the CTCP is completely finished next year , it will total out at around 1600-1700, which would make it the longest trail on Earth by a comfortable margin. Power trails are not everyones ' cup-of-tea ' but this trail has already won accolades from both power-trailers and those not so much into that a typical PT, as it demands and delivers a difference experience. As one of the small group responsible for this projects, I would like to invite all to come to the beautiful " Gentle Island " and cache our trail! Quote Link to comment
