Walkers, skate skiers, snowshoers, winter cyclists, and sleds should stay in the middle part of the trail, out of the classic ski tracks.
Dogs are welcome on the trail where they are not otherwise prohibited by By-Law. Although the main trail on the multi-use pathway is dog friendly, dog owners are cautioned that there are certain well-signed areas within Britannia Park where dogs are not allowed. Dogs must be on leash with responsible owners who are considerate of multi-use safety and courtesy. Poop “stoop and scoop” is expected.
When there are many users on the trail, common courtesy dictates that slower users stay right and that faster users pass on the left but only after a warning and only if the way is clear.
The trail is funded by the City of Ottawa, National Capital Commission (NCC), business sponsors and donations from the public.
The trail expansion in 2021 from Belltown Dome to Andrew Haydon Park is generously funded by Accora Village.
