Rideau Trail Association Logo

The Rideau Trail Association (RTA) is a charitable, volunteer-run organization with two main roles:

First, it coordinates and promotes self-propelled activities such as hiking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and other outdoor activities.  Hikes and other activities are led by certified and experienced hike leaders.  Hikes are suitable for beginner, intermediate and advanced hikers.
Second, it stewards over 40 trails that span over 450 km. The main trail, known as the Rideau Trail, is roughly 325 km in length, and goes between downtown Kingston and downtown Ottawa.
Our Mission
To promote, encourage and conduct responsible hiking and similar self-propelled activities while stewarding the Rideau Trail network.
Our Vision
A community of engaged hikers; a legacy of enduring trails.

The RTA has three Clubs that conduct led hikes and other activities throughout the year.  Clubs are located in Kingston, Central (Perth area), and Ottawa.
