Long Description:
Prince Edward Island's Highest Point is Canada’s lowest provincial high point at 142 meters or 466 feet.

There's a summit register at the high point. The register is titled "Glen Valley P.E.I. Highest Point Club"

Directions:
"From the Confederation Bridge, stay on Highway 1 for about five miles then take 1A until you come to Route 225. Head east on east on 225 for 10-15 miles and in the Springton area Route 227 meets 225. This is a bit tricky here, there is an immediate left turn on a dirt road that heads WNW. This is Junction Road and that is the road you want; not the side road you see as you head east (that is east bound 227).
As you continue on Junction Road, there will be a C shaped curve in the road. This is a scenic tree lined country (red) dirt road and you will want to park at near the second opening (after the C curve) to a field. You will see woods to the right of the open field. As you’re walking along the road, there will be a faint path going into the woods which leads to a more distinct trail. There are other reports that the path going into the woods is marked with surveyor tape but we went in June when there was a lot of greenery & growth so we may have missed that one but we managed to find the path in the woods from the way we entered.

Going along the path in the woods, there will be a tree on the right with pink surveyor tape wrapped on it. This is about 100 ft or so from the field. Take an immediate turn to the right at this tree and follow the tapes and it will bring you to a mailbox post with a register inside. Could not find a benchmark there. The summit register was put there & maintained by a local highpoint club. They have their name & number on the first page and they've brought people there. The log has been there since 2000 and it appears not many people visit this actual spot. The last entry before mine was eight months ago (as of June 2007)." (visit link)
