    Kevin Reynolds reviewed Cedar Grove Trail - Rogers Pond

    about 1 year ago

    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).
