Trail 50-52


Trails 50-52 at the Mer Bleue Conservation Area are quite something to behold. Located in the middle of one of the largest bogs in Southern Ontario, the paths traverse through what is arguably one of the most important natural area in the Greenbelt. It is also a valuable example of the northern ecosystem-more typical of the arctic than the Ottawa Valley.

Mer Bleu has been designated an internationally significant wetland under the United Nations’ Ramsar Convention. The trail offers substantial help in identifying various species of plants and animals. These include the sundew, pitcher plant, rare orchids, the spotted turtle, and Fletcher’s dragonfly. The different loops may be completed in any combination, providing a walk as long as 12-km, or as short as 2.8-km. Each loop is numbered as a separate trail.
