Beautiful as always. Lots of chickadees - bring your seeds! Also, lots of mosquitoes. Bring your afterbite. And of course lots of chipmunks.

really nice trail, we went for a walk in the rain hut because if the trees we barely felt a drop. We were followed by five wild turkeys and they are not shy at all! Birds and chipmunks are also very friendly, as a chipmunk ran across my foot and a bird was eating out of my partner's hand. very cool!

Pleasant trail for walking. It was hot and humid so we were glad that much of it was in the shade. Lots of chickadees looking for sun flower seeds so don’t forget to bring some with you. Quite a few blackberry bushes should be ready for picking in a week or two.

Great location for bird lovers - saw many different birds; all the way from a big beautiful blue jay to a woody wood pecker.

A nice, easy walking trail with many birds, chipmunks and other wildlife that are clearly used to being fed by humans.

Beautiful trial in the woods with some awesome views of swamp/wetlands areas. There is a Wild Birdcare Centre here too. The trail is easy and great for anyone or a family to come explore!

Short and easy trail. The path was well maintained and was easy to access from the main road. I would recommend this hike for someone with kids and/or looking for a quick fix of nature.

It was a nice trail! Recommend pushing past the loop toward lime kiln ruins.

The wooden sidewalks are nice and provide a great spot from which to observe the wild life. Very muddy in some areas at this time of year. Signs regarding dogs are not clear.

A nice greenbelt Ottawa walk - really fun for small kids. Of all greenbelt walks in Ottawa that I've walked, this is probably the one where the chickadees feed out of your hands the most. Just bring a few seeds and they'll be all over your hands (and head!) A young but healthy looking forest. There's also a bird rescue at the start of the trail in the woods,which is interesting.
