This route starts just outside of Cobden along Highway # 17 where you turn to go to the whitewater rafting company sites. There is a parking area right there. We intended to follow the route described in the OttawaValleyExplore.com book but realized it was 52 k long and we didn’t have enough sunlight so we went to River Run Rafting to have a beer but we were one day too early. We met a nice lad named Phil who told us that on the Victoria Day weekend and every summer day after that we could come down to the river and buy ourselves a beer. We told him we plan to. We settled for a semi warm Heineken in a field being eaten by black flies. Not complaining!
The route we took (which was an excellent 40 k ride)
Follow Foresters Falls road for one k and turned right over to Kolsmith road and turned left all the way to the end and crossed the Kerr Line at Millers Crossing onto # 43 to River Run. On the way back we took #43 but this time turned right at Millers Crossing into Foresters Falls and continued on that road back to our vehicles.
Things to watch for!!
