The trail runs mainly along the north-south of the canal. I like the riverside and canal walks in England. The size and width of the Rideau Canal is more like a river in the UK, very large. The scenery is beautiful, there is no rubbish, and the cyclists and joggers are very friendly. This is a "must do" event in Ottawa! I highly recommend it!
The Rideau Canal is a well-known canal in downtown Ottawa. There is a section of the Rideau Canal. In ninety-nine cold winters, the canal froze. Hundreds of people skated on the ice of the canal and became Ottawa Village. A scene.
The river is more than 200 kilometers from Kingston to Ottawa and was an important project in the 19th century. We climbed up the hillside behind the Ottawa Art Gallery to overlook the canal in Ottawa. To the south of the river is Ottawa, you can see the back of Parliament Hill, and to the north of the river is Gatineau, the French-speaking area. We also saw local people put yachts into the canal level by level through the sluice.
I hardly saw the Lido Canal in the flow during my four months in Ottawa and even saw hundreds of people skating on the frozen Lido Canal in January and February, unfortunately not bringing skates and missed this most local event
