I am planning to do an overnight trip on the trail and wanted to know if there is a safe place to park in Ottawa? I have done day rides and parked in the park close to the highway but I would hope there would be a better place than that.

I’ve never parked overnight on this trail. So It’s hard to say. Maybe one of the well-lit 24-hr convenience stores, like the one close to the Old Depot Museum trailhead? Good luck.

I just did a trip this weekend and parked at the Ottawa Depot. I even asked and they said that was ok. Didn’t have any problem.

We did park at the Old Train Depot Museum and there were no problems. We had a great ride but struggled with the head wind to Iola. After a great dinner at the Greenery and a good nights stay at the American Best Value Inn it made our ride home that much easier. With the four of us riders we had one broken spoke and one flat tire. Huge difference from our ride last year when we had 9 flat tires between 3 riders.

I’ll take a flat tire to a broken spoke any day. Glad you had a good trip.
