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

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
