Macnamara Nature Trail
Many of the special natural features highlighted on this trail were discovered by Charles Macnamara nearly a century ago. It is only fitting that this trail and the club that built it bear the name of one of the greatest naturalists to walk through any wild region in past of present times.
This 4 km long interpretive trail in the Nopiming Game Sanctuary is an exceptional example of its kind, with boardwalks and an observation tower providing a grandstand view of the natural world.
Directions; Driving up Hwy 17, from Ottawa, take the first turnoff into Arnprior, along Madawaska Blvd. (Alternatively, leave Hwy 17 at the traffic lights, and approach the town via Daniel St). Turn north off Madawaska Blvd. at McNab St. and park on your right by the kiosk at the entrance to the trail. Information provided by the Arnprior and ValleyExplore websites.
