Hi fellow Peakbaggers (hey – we all have mountains we need to climb, right?),
Below you will find all information relating to PEI’s highest point.
We will be first attempting this summit October 5, 2015.
We will be updating this page with our progress including photos, GPS maps and files, reflections, and soon enough our webisode. How’s the trip going? Subscribe to our newsletter and YouTube channel to find out.
Talk to you soon,
PEI’s summit is located at Springton in Queens County at 154 m (466 feet) above sea level. The Island is formed from sedimentary bed rock of soft, red sandstone which produces the rich, red soil. The redness of the soil is due to the high iron-oxide (rust) content. The Island’s first residents were the Mi’kmaq. (source: Government of PEI)
