Geocache Description:


I've had the opportunity to cycle most of le p'tit train du Nord with Duffy73. A very nice scenic trail in QC. It is therefore logical that I add to le p'tit train du sud for others to enjoy in the Ottawa area. The cache is a regular plastic container obtained from Duffy's tomato product supplier and is located just a few meters off the trail, The terrain is ranked a two star because of a very short bushwhack to the cache. Did not see any poison ivy but keep an eye open just in case.

Already a cachers destination, the Ottawa Carleton Trail which officially runs from West Ottawa to Carleton Place. It's a beautiful ride that will allow you to grab a few caches along the way.

The ride is pleasant enough, but like many trails that have been converted from old railway lines, it is very straight, and variations in the scenery are somewhat limited.

At about the half way point to Carleton Place, you will cross the Dwyer Hill Road. At the Cavanagh Construction facility, the trail merges with a local road for a few hundred metres.

The Ottawa-Carleton Trail-way comes to an end in a small industrial park in the outskirts of Carleton Place, and it leads cyclists onto Coleman Street. To get downtown, you will have to cross a busy four lane road (McNeely Ave) and continue on Coleman for almost a kilometer until you pass the old railroad station (which now houses a community services centre). At the next major intersection, turn right onto Franktown Road. It is a fairly busy road, but you only stay on it for about half a kilometre to get downtown. During this short distance, the name of Franktown Road changes from Moore Street to Bridge Street.

Enjoy the walk, run, bike ride, cross country ski or,...in the words of a teenager,"whatever"!
