The Prescott-Russell Recreational Trail spans a distance of 72 kilometres, linking several municipalities of the United Counties with the cycling networks of Quebec and the Ottawa region. Built on an old railway bed, this gravel trail lends itself well to various athletic and recreational activities, including cycling, walking, running, bird watching, photography and astronomy. Nature lovers will discover diverse landscapes marked by woodlots, residential areas, agricultural lands, and wetlands. Five pavilions are located along the trail in the villages of St-Eugène, Vankleek Hill, Plantagenet, Bourget and Hammond. The Prescott-Russell Recreational Trail is the perfect trail for a family outing.
