The Dewberry Trail is in the Mer Bleue area of the Greenbelt. Mer Bleue is the largest bog and natural area in Canada’s Capital Region and the second-largest bog in southern Ontario.

Since it is only one kilometre long, the Dewberry Trail is perfect for hikers of all ages and abilities. The hike can be extended by taking one of the many other trails that link to it. This trail also passes through a young forest and an old forest, with a marked variation in habitats between the two forest types.
