I do a 4.5 km loop off of the parking lot on hunt club. Dogs allowed only during the summer, once it snows the cross country skiers take over

Excellent trail network, also connects with all the other Western Greenbelt trails so for a day's worth of hikes you can be quite busy.

Loved this hike! Started at beaver trail and worked my way to lime kiln ruins across to jack pine. Saw some deer, a weasel, frog, snakes, and cute chickadees that followed us for sometime. There is a portion of the forest that looked burnt but it made for a oddly beautiful hike. The lime kiln ruins also was a nice place to explore. I would definitely recommend this trail!

Well marked with many options to adapt to all levels and time available. My only deception is that I can't bring my dog along.

Possibly the nicest greenbelt walk. It quickly makes you forget that you're walking within the Ottawa city limits. Fairly accessible during the fall (at least the first few hundred metres) as I went with my disabled mother and 6 year old daughter and no problems - just a few rocks and roots to get around.

You see lots of chickadees, which will feed from your hand if you have seeds, red squirrels and woodpeckers.

Very nice hike, but sometimes difficult to stay out of the way of the cross-country ski tracks
