Be sure to check the map page to ensure that you are not trespassing on closed (or non-upgraded) trail sections.
Algonquin Trail to Expand Multi-Use Through Pembroke and Laurentian Valley
Recently the Councils of the City of Pembroke and the Township of Laurentian Valley agreed to the inclusion of motorized/multi-use activities on the sections of the Algonquin Trail that pass through their municipalities. These decisions align with the overall purpose of the Algonquin Trail / Ottawa Valley Recreational Trail to be a four-season multi-use trail.
The Work Continues on the Algonquin Trail
One of the biggest Algonquin Trail builds by the County of Renfrew will be starting this week! Twenty-one kilometres of the trail, from Renfrew to Cobden, will be graded, packed, and an application of stone dust to make this multi-use trail even more usable by all authorized users. This will complete the Ottawa Valley Recreational Trail/Algonquin Trail from Smiths Falls to just past the Village of Cobden..
The 296km Ottawa Valley Recreational Trail is a multi-use corridor that stretches from near Smiths Falls to just shy of Mattawa, passing through Lanark County, Renfrew County (where it is also known as the Algonquin Trail) and Papineau-Cameron Township.
