|Prescott and Russel Recreational Trail|
The Prescott and Russell recreational trail is a tour in and of itself of the United Counties of Prescott and Russell, and several municipalities, as it crosses through at least five (of the eight) municipalities in the Ottawa region. Short jaunts at different points will take you to new and interesting places. Such as the golf course off kilometer 17, or the luscious farmland *when headed east* greeting you at kilometer 14. As this is a long-trail, it might be worth taking a long day of riding to complete it, or just doing it in smaller sections. It’s relatively flat, so it’s an easier ride, if a long one.
The trail starts around Anderson Rd. and goes east through Leonard, Hammond, Plantagenet all the way to Rigaud.
