Super short. Not well maintained but flat. Some views of Rideau River.

My family and I walked the Cedar Grove Walking trail. It's a flat trail and not too slippery even though we walked at the end of the winter season. Unsurpisingly it walks through a cedar forest. The best part is that if you want solitude you'll get it here - just you and nature. We saw only 2 other groups while walking over 1.5 hours.

Lovely quiet walk with the sound of flowing water. Trail well maintained. Note that historic bridge over river is closed and under constuction until “spring 2018”. Spotted a pair of Trumpeter Swans in pond upstream from dam, quite impressive and unexpected for March 18, 2018. (see photos)

Was a nice short trail.

A nice trail all year round in a large City of Ottawa natural area (Marlborough Forest). This loop goes around a Ducks Unlimited pond (Rogers Pond) and travels through forest and a large meadow. Marsh and forest birds are common and you sometimes see turtles and snakes. Other wildlife are common but shy as the area is hunted in the fall (I wear hunter orange when on the trail in the fall and stay off of it during the 2 weeks of rifle season for deer). The trail is buggy in the spring and early summer and muddy in the spring and after heavy rain, although the section into the pond is a gravel maintenance road for the Ducks Unlimited dam so is always good condition. The trail is part of the Rideau Trail system developed by the Rideau Trail Association and is cleared by them on a volunteer basis. Cedar Grove Trail is a blue loop (blue markers) off of the main Rideau Trail (orange markers).

One of our favourite places to walk with the dogs...
woukd not recommend in the summer as there was too many bugs,goose poo and snakes but today was great and winter is excellent.
