Haunted Wood Trail – Infrastructure project
The Haunted Wood Trail at Green Gables Heritage Place is being renewed and will have a new look for summer 2016. The re-furbished trail will retain all of its beauty and mystery while at the same time increasing safety for visitors. There are bridges to cross and woodland vistas to discover in a truly enjoyable experience for visitors. The trail is currently available for use by visitors.
The trail lies to the east of Green Gables house and connects Green Gables Heritage Place to the Site of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Cavendish Home. The trail is a “must do” for many visitors to our site as it is lovingly described in the Anne of Green Gables novel and is the setting for many of Anne’s fictional adventures. Because of the high volume of foot traffic along the Haunted Wood Trail, the trail takes a lot of wear and tear during the summer months.
The wooden staircase leading from the lawn of the Green Gables house to the first bridge and the start of the Haunted Wood Trail was replaced in the fall of 2015. During spring of 2016, the existing bridge located at the beginning of the Haunted Wood Trail will be replaced, as well as new gravel added to areas of the trail that have become worn down over time.
With the construction work set for completion in the spring of 2016, Parks Canada is very pleased to invite visitors to explore the Haunted Wood Trail and take a walk through Lucy Maud Montgomery’s world. Work is expected to be completed by the end of April. Please stay tuned for more details.
