Compromise could pave way for completion of rail trail

By CBC News Ottawa, March 8, 2018

The town council of Mississippi Mills, Ont., has approved a compromise to allow snowmobiles — but not ATVs — on a section of the Ottawa Valley Rail Trail.

The 296-kilometre trail is being built along a former Canadian Pacific Railway corridor, which was purchased by Renfrew and Lanark counties for recreational purposes.

The trail connects Smiths Falls to Mattawa, passing through Carleton Place, Almonte, Arnprior, Pembroke and Petawawa.
