An interesting little tail used regularly by locals

The area to the east approaching King St is closed due to construction as at December 2019. The construction fence can be walked around with a "little" effort but the bypass is not marked and is not part of the trail so take care and beware!

Need to Know

On street parking is easy around the portions that cross King St.

Runner Notes

The portion to the north through three woods is a little rocky so a possible risk of twisted ankles; otherwise, it's a good run.

Description

A mixture of environments, some street running, a portion along the Saint Lawrence River waterfront, a section through evergreen woods, a portion through rocky woods, a section near over the Gananoque River and a stroll along an old railway line route. Not a hard run.

There are several side trails as well, especially near the Gan River, all worth a look. Check out this link for an attached guide and map.

Flora & Fauna

Lots of trees and birds. I saw a pair of wolves last time I went out in mid-December.
