End of May. Be prepared: Many bugs, short trail, but the greenery was nice. Worth a try.

Amazing trail for beginners. Bring bug spray!

Good trail. Just bring big spray this time of the year.

Nice and scenic walking trails, but we never thought of how bad the mosquitoes would be, there are alot of marsh areas.... perfect breeding ground for those pests. We will definitely revisit in the late fall.

First time exploring this trail. It was a great walk but some balancing required on fallen logs to get across some areas due to mud and water. Can’t wait to explore more!

Trails are very well maintained thanks to the Ottawa Mountain Biking Association, so expect to see bikers and make sure to give them the right-of-way. All types of variations you can do in terms of hiking, so you can weave you way around for as long as you like. A great hidden gem, being that it is so close to the city, but you quickly forget how close you really are to the suburbs once you get out there.

Amazing trail. Heavily used by courteous mountain bikers (awesome spot to bike!) Great views, different terrains. Buggy but worth it. Not stroller friendly, not serviced. Moderately difficult

Nice path, great views. parts are under construction and it gets real busy as the day goes on. If you're looking for a quiet walk go early.

Good trail, pretty muddy. Social distancing not a problem except on the boardwalks. Was busy, but it is a long weekend.

Nice quiet trail if you get deep enough. Have snowshoed this area many times and it’s great. Not really family friendly or serviced. Some trails are overgrown

Heavily trafficked, buggy trail. Short and not very impressive. Can easily hear road traffic nearby

Nice easy trail, moderately trafficked. Great for frog, turtle, bird, duck watching. Educational and eco friendly for kids

For trail running this is quite a technical and rocky route that is close to Ottawa. There are no big climbs but constant quick ups and downs. It is characterized by single-track and rocks (huge flat ones, small sharp ones, everything in between) which means you have to stay focused for the whole run. Well-signed but no maps on the trails.

53A is still pretty much in the bog so folks would best leave that one until later in the summer. I had to abandon it at the 3/4 mark to finish the leg on the road. 53 was fairly busy today so I didn’t pop down to the boardwalk.
