         This loop combines three important elements of the Ottawa area ecology. The first is Mer Bleue, the crown jewel of the local greenbelt. Its 2,000 hectares (5,000 acres) of peatland makes it one of the largest in Southern Ontario and unique in the Ottawa area. The second is the area of Bear Brook that floods in spring between Mer Bleue and Frank Kenny Road, east of Carlsbad Springs. And the third is the agricultural land east of Orleans and Blackburn Hamlet. These combine to make this a very rewarding loop.
