Did the whole 72 km from east (St-Eugène) to west (Ottawa). Trail is 95% on gravel, so you need tires larger than 28 mm. Most of it is fine gravel, with a few parts with a mix of small rocks. I did the whole trail...More

I've rode this trail a couple of times from end to end. My second ride it was in better shape and money had been invested on some distance markers and better signage. Starting at the East end at the St-Eugene Pavilion the unfinished parts are...More

We biked 20 km of the trail from Vankleek Hill road 34 heading west to Boundary Rd and back to the parking. The trail was crushed dust and great for biking. We passed only two washrooms (port-a-pottie) the whole time. Some great sights on the...More

This cycling path crosses under HWY 417 at exit 17 and is only 2 km off the highway, so it was quite convenient to get to. The pea gravel path is in good condition and we cycled westward past farmland and the countryside is lovely....More
