What's to like on the Moira Riverfront Trail
Tidal rivers, like the Saguenay River off the St. Lawrence River, near Tadoussac, Quebec, or rivers prone to wind tides, like the Napanee River, in Ontario, add other challenges. It isn't always easy to find information about some of the rivers you want to paddle.
Because we did not know the Moira River, in Belleville, Ontario (Canada), with its mouth on Great Lake Ontario's Bay of Quinte, we left the kayaks parked, and decided to cycle it to scout it out.
We discovered the Moira Riverfront Trail, a very cool 4.4 kilometer (2.7 mile) long dedicated pathway (meaning no cars!) that runs parallel to the river.
If you've got a fishing pole and are wondering what's biting, there are dedicated spots on some bridges for fishing. This is also probably a clue as to the best and most popular bridges to fish from.

The Moira Riverfront Trail in Belleville, Ontario is one of my favourite urban cycling paths. But there's more . . . a cool lunch spot we found. Two thumbs up for the Moira Riverfront Trail and the lunch spot.
For more information and images about cycling the Moira Riverfront Trail in Belleville, Ontario, my next story is up on The Great Waterway, a cool Ontario Tourism website where I'm a regular blogger:
