For travelling on foot this trail sucks! Too many cyclists. There are better trails to walk or hike on than this. There are some parts downtown though that are good to walk on but most of it should be left for the cyclists. It is a great trail to bike on though.

Great multi-use paved trail, used by both cyclists and hikers. This path offers great views of the Ottawa River the back of the parliament buildings and Rideau Canal.

Better for cross country skiing than snowshoeing but enjoyable all the same. River was frozen over well so we were able to venture out!

Nice multi terrain hiking trails. This is a dog friendly area but please poop and scoop! These trails are more for a leisurely stroll and not for the hard core hiker.
