Watts Creek Pathway – Ottawa Greenbelt

Watts Creek Pathway – Ottawa Greenbelt
– Approximately 6.2 km one way.

The Watts Creek Pathway has had some major upgrading in the past couple of years and I hadn’t cycled along it recently so, with rain forecast for tomorrow, I decided that today would be as good a day as any to take my bike and camera out along that newly refurbished pathway. I entered the pathway at the March Road entrance in Kanata. From there the pathway travels alongside Watts Creek which, at this time of the year, still has quite a bit of water flowing in it. By mid-summer that water flow slows to a trickle except after heavy rainfalls. The pathway crosses the creek in a couple of locations before heading out toward Moodie Drive.

Along the way, cyclists get to look both ways at a railway crossing and a bit further along the trail get to cycle under another railway bridge.

Of course, at this time of the year, the grass is always greener on the other side of the pathway!

The pathway passes the pastures for the Nepean National Equestrian Park and some days the horses are out grazing near to the pathway. Today was such a day and I wasn’t the only one out with a camera in hand.
