Easy walking for most of the trail. Nice views of the Bay. Some areas are muddy, and full of mosquitoes. Some areas have full sun so wear sunscreen. A couple of bridges are out, but can be navigated by foot.

Did the 4K today in an hour. Trail was a bit muddy but the bugs are finally gone! Nice flat trail, relaxing fall hike with still some decent sweat! Enjoyable.

An easy 4.2 km loop. Glad I had bug repellant! A little boggy in some places and forest in others. Some really nice views of the Ottawa River!

Mid autumn walk - through woods and along the river accented by a large flock of geese. Part of trail is still washed out due to spring flooding, so expect to detour part of the trail between P2 and Davidson Side Rd. Lovely area with autumn colours.

A decent trail through bushes and some marsh and scrub. The trail is supposed to be open for walkers and dog walkers from April 14-Dec 1 and open for cross country skiing in the winter months. There were a few walkers but mostly skiiers when we went though (a sunny day, the snow was mostly melting!). I didn't see too many birds but as we get closer to the river we could hear lots of them. Very flat so it may be why its so popular with skiiers.
