Cardinal & Iroquois - Waterfront Trail
Edwardsburgh/Cardinal is the most rural of the Townships that make up South Grenville. Traveling along County Road 2, you’ll come to the Village of Johnstown, the site of the Canadian terminus of the Ogdensburg-Prescott International Bridge, which runs south to Ogdensburg, NY. East of Johnstown is Cardinal, a quaint village dating back to the 1790s. Its heritage is still visible in its old buildings and the remains of the historic Galop Canal, which runs along Cardinal’s waterfront. Cardinal is also the final resting place of the Conestoga, a historic sunken vessel- one of many in the area- making Cardinal an attractive spot for divers.
Asphalt, on-road, County Road 2 Sections of County Rd. 2 between Prescott and Cardinal run on narrow to no shoulders with moderate levels of traffic (including trucks); caution should be exercised due to speed limit of 80 km/h. Section through Cardinal has wide paved shoulder. Section east of Cardinal runs on loose gravel shoulder. Care should be taken since the speed limit for vehicles is 80 km/h. Moderate levels of traffic (including trucks). A short detour south in Cardinal brings you to Cardinal Legion Waterfront Park, which has a scenic cycling trail (gravel) right by the St. Lawrence River. Parking: Cardinal Legion Waterfront Park – off Dundas St., Cardinal.
