SUMMARY: The narrow, red clay lanes of the Island are special places – each with a story. Spared burial under cement or asphalt, they are no longer just avenues for getting from one place to another, but a unique part of our heritage.

The Terrain over which these routes travel is varied and captivating. High hills, twists and turns lure the traveler onward. Wonderful vistas provide panoramic views of the country side, as well as glimpses of rural life – of farmsteads, new and abandoned, and the remnants of sawmills and furniture factories – early enterprises that have since ceased operation.

“Tunnels” of foliage are found along some of these trails. Native hardwoods such as sugar maple, red maple, beech and red oak are some of the trees contributing to the canopies that arch over many roads. Spruce, pine and hemlock provide contrast and depth where they intersperse with deciduous trees. Bordering farmsteads, they form sturdy hedgerows.

In open areas lupins, black-eyed susans, daisies, Queen Anne”s lace and a host of other wild flowers create an abundance of bloom while, under the tree cover, mosses, ferns and trillium are some of the plants that thrive in the shade. Appreciated not only by humans, these roads and their associated vegetation serve as wildlife corridors for foxes, squirrels and snowshoe hares. Roadside bushes provide nesting sites for many song birds.
