I'm pretty excited about this. It could be the best thing this side of the P'tit Train du Nord, which of course is a huge success. The Ottawa-Carleton Trailway, which is pleasant but not nearly as scenic as the Valley corridor, extends from Ottawa to Carleton Place. So there's direct bike-trail access to this proposed trail right from the middle of Ottawa. And the Cataraqui Trail would be a direct link to Kingston and the trans-Ontario Waterfront Trail. It just makes too much sense not to happen. County governments are negotiating with CP Rail to acquire the Valley property. I'm cheering for a swift and trouble-free process.
