The Rusty Bat trail follows the Madawaska River into Wabun Lake. The trail head is located about an hour and a half west of Ottawa. The trail criss-crosses the power line with a few rock climbing opportunities, all with go-arounds. Climbing a long rocky hill, the trail climbs to a peak under the hydro line which offers a scenic view of the lake and river. This is a nice place to stop for lunch before turning around.
