Rideau River Provincial Park

Leeds & Grenville Counties,

Hiking Trails:
Shoreline Trail: Blue blaze

Total Time: 1:50 hour
Estimated Distance: 2.8 Miles

Pros: Scenic walk along river shoreline
Cons: Lots of mosquitoes

I had taken a camping trip with my family to the Ottawa area in Canada, and stayed at the Rideau River Campground in Rideau River Provincial Park. The park is alongside the Rideau River, with a hiking trail along the shore. The trail is 1.4 miles long, and I took it roundtrip. I started in the campground area, in the middle of the park, and headed north, past the fishing dock and picnic area, to the northern end of the park. I think turned back around and went south to the other end of the park. I then walked long the campground road back to my campsite.
