The Rideau Trail

Ottawa Magazine - - THIS CITY -

ex­tends from Kingston to Ot­tawa and is 327 kilo­me­tres one way! The trail takes hik­ers to Mur­phys Point Pro­vin­cial Park, where a work­ing mine closed in 1920. Now spelunkers can de­scend 20 me­tres into the 40-me­tre shaft to glimpse “ic­ing glass” mica, the di­verse flora that thrive in the cool cli­mate at the bot­tom, and mas­sive sheets of ice that can be seen well into Au­gust.
