Westmeath Provincial Park
Traveling on the westmeath road County Road 12 towards Westmeath, Ontario along the way we have many beautiful trails in the natural forests that run along the Ottawa River shorelines with spectacular views of the Laurentian Valley our first stop is Westmeath Provincial Park. A truly Hidden Gem there is no entrance fee and this Provincial Park has no on-site services or facilities but it is excellent for hiking and swimming the trail is beautiful and Serene. The Park trail has double tracks and is relatively flat and suitable for a stroller with a good suspension but it does take about 45 minutes each way to get to your destination.
The Park has an abundance of wildflowers you can also see animals like foxes beavers and many different type of birds it is also an excellent place for mushroom picking. My favorite destination at the end of one of the trails is the beautiful Sandy Beach for viewing the Ottawa River and relaxing and it has no crowds the beach is shallow in the summer only ankle deep for a very far distance great for little kids
