Enjoy a stroll through some of the Rideau River's most sensitive and beautiful habitats. Lookouts, walkways and boardwalks lead visitors through natural shoreline, wetlands and floodplain areas that are unique in the City of Ottawa. Learn about the ecology of the Rideau River as you stroll along the 1.8 Km trail, then stop for a picnic at the covered shelter or fish from one of the viewing platforms. Canoe access to the river is also available from the dock.
