Limerick Forest features a massive 180km of single-track trails, access roads, and many tracks in between. Just an hours’ drive south of Ottawa just past Kemptville on the 416, the Limerick Forest trails and roads have a sandy base, meaning they tend to dry quicker than some of the other Ottawa mountain bike spots. The trails are multi-use and motorize vehicles are allowed on many of the trails, but you will see a dirt bike from time to time.
The majority of the large variety of recreational activities occurring within Limerick Forest is associated with its many trails and roads. The “mapped” trail network within Limerick Forest consists of approximately 180 km of trails ranging in size from “single track” to emergency access roads suitable for full-sized vehicles. In addition, approximately 30 km of “groomed” snowmobile trails are maintained by the Leeds & Grenville Snowmobile Association. A number of information kiosks have been installed at various locations throughout Limerick Forest. Mosaics of air photos and trail maps, 911 locations, parking areas and public service announcements may be found on these kiosks.
