Our Mission – Healthy Living, Family Fun, and Group Activities

The Rideau Winter Trail is a not-for-profit organization that promotes the development, sustainability and public use of trails in and around the Rideau River in central Ottawa. This community-led initiative provides a winter trail for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, walking and snow biking.

During winter, the 2.5 kilometre Rideau Winter Trail, which is located upon the embankment of the Rideau River on lands managed and maintained by the National Capital Commission, is groomed once a week by Rideau Winter Trail.

The trail is a prime destination for outdoor activities in the heart of Ottawa, serving the Vanier, Overbrook and Sandy Hill neighbourhoods.

The trail can be accessed at 1 Donald Street next to the Rideau Sports Centre and Adàwe Crossing.
