The Almonte Riverside Trail is an intermediate single track trail West of Ottawa just outside the picturesque town of Almonte. The trail system is continuing to grow with some areas not on the map yet. The best way to see all of this network is to catch the wheel of one of the local riders and follow them.
The single track would best be described as a bit bumpy with lots of rocks and roots. Several short rock gardens and bridges add to the fun. A bit of suspension on your bike makes the trail more enjoyable.
The trail head/entrance to the system is located on Strathburn Street about 200m from where it meets Country Road 29/Christian Street. There is a sign on the North hand side of the road indicating the trail entrance.
The network wouldn’t exist without the co-operation and good will of the local land owners who gave permission for the trail to cross their private land. Please be respectful so we can keep riding these trails.

      Wet leaves made finding the trail difficult in some areas, but not too bad. Traction could be a bit challenging on wet leaves and roots.

      Trail is in great shape. Plenty of leaves but the trail is very viable.

      Dry and running great! Addy's cut is a nice addition for variety on the way in or out.
