N - Sentier de la voie ferrée et circuit vinicole

Essayez le sentier de l’ancienne voie ferrée bien entretenu d’Ottawa-Prescott-Russell directement au sud du village de Navan lors d’une agréable ballade de 7 km parsemée de forêts et de terres agricoles à perte de vue. Suivez les routes secondaires de campagne non pavées qui vous ramèneront jusqu’à Navan. N’oubliez pas de faire un arrêt à deux vignobles en route, en profitant des paysages panoramiques et en goûtant à leur bon cru, produit avec des raisins des champs environnants. 23,5 km

This route is “8-year-old-Anna-approved.” Travelling at the pace of our young daughter, we road 10 km of the Prescott-Russell Trail, and then a series of quiet, gravel roads. On a whim, we rode into the Vignoble Clos du Vully. Over nearly an hour, we chatted with the vineyard's owner, Jan-Daniel Etter, sampled several wines (sorry Anna, only water and a granola bar for you!), then filled my pannier with four of his wines. Yes, you can cycle and shop for wine at the same time in Ottawa!

With the afternoon fading into the evening, we opted to take a shortcut that would mean skipping the Domaine Perrault Vineyard and Winery. It was after 5 pm, and closed by then. Besides, my panniers were full, and Anna was tiring by this point. From Huismans Road, we turned right on Frank Kenny Road, and then retraced our route back to Navan using the Prescott-Russell Trail by which we came.
