Description

The Rideau Trail (RT) continues from Rideau Trail: Bedford Mills Segment then turns right on the gravel McAndrews Rd and follows it north, then northwest for 2.2 km to a sharp right turn in the road. The RT goes ahead (northwest) off the road on an unopened road allowance, passing under a powerline and over a wooden bridge, to reach the paved Centreville Rd after another 1.8 km.

The RT goes right (northeast) for 1.2 km on Centreville Rd, then, near a corner with Perth Rd (Rd 10) ahead and right, turns left (northwest) on the paved Concession Rd 9. After 1.8 km it crosses Salem Rd (Rd 12) and goes ahead (northwest), over a bridge at the west end of Westport Sand Lake and another 300 m on a gravel part of the road to a sharp bend left at point 07C.

The RT goes up from the road on a track that bends right, then turns right (east). It enters forest and winds northeast, passing swamps left and then right, then bends right near a white house. It continues east on a wide track on a ridge that includes the highest point along the RT, turning left onto property of the Westport Lions Club.
Continuing east in open scrub and forest, it passes a junction with a BL to the right. It goes left off the track, returns to it, then goes right off the track up to a view over Westport Sand Lake right. It then mostly descends on a forest path, going right at a fork, to the edge of the lake. It continues on a grass track to the Lions Club Beach, with toilets open in summer, and parking.

The RT goes left up the paved driveway, then left up the paved Mountain Rd for 250 m and right on a path that goes up in forest. The RT turns right and, still on a forest path, winds southeast, then east, descends to cross a first wood bridge, and rises again.

It continues east, descends to cross a second wood bridge, and then goes ahead on more level ground to Perth Rd (Rd 10). It goes left on the road for 25 m, then right (southeast) into the Foley Mountain Conservation Area on a grass track.
