I walked this trail with my 8-year old daughter and a 6-year old friend. It was very easy for them and we were pleasantly surprised to see some wildlife: a toad, frogs, garter snake a woodpecker. It's very gentle. The start of the trail is the middle of a nice but not particularly memorable wood. After a few hundred metres you start walking along the rideau river with some occasional nice views. However, for much of the middle of the trail you walk very near a number of people's campsites which takes away from the feeling of being in nature. That's why I rate this trail as 2 starts. (Note to self: don't book campsites right next to this trail!)
