This Hiking Trail in Ottawa Leads You To A Frozen Waterfall That Looks Straight From NarniaMegan Renaud | Narcity

The forested trail is a relatively easy 2.5-kilometre trail loop leading to a row of frozen cascading waterfalls and serene views.

Along the route, you'll want to keep your eyes peeled for cute chickadee birds hopping between the trees.

The loop path is a simple walk that takes you to a wooden staircase leading toward the Ottawa River.

You won't believe your eyes as you approach the shore. Along the river, beneath the pines, is an icy screen of waterfalls frozen in time.

Sheila Mckee Park is a dog-friendly trail, with dogs kept on leash. It is also a picturesque spot to catch the sunrise or sunset over the Ottawa River.
