Excellent pathway for cycling, walking, jogging, nature walks, birding, and for accessing the river to canoe or kayak. Much quieter than the western section of the Ottawa River Pathway. Lots of wide open spaces in certain sections while others are heavily forested. The path is well maintained and well signed so wayfinding is quite easy. Passes the RCMP Musical Ride and The Canada Space and Aviation Museum.
