    If you go to maps and publication, then maps, the hard copy version is what I mentioned in the earlier posts. This map shows the Marlborough forest. It looks like this map is out of stock though.

    Ya, no stock and the virtual one does not show anything between Richmond and Smiths Falls.

    The two links that Impact posted in post #6 will allow you to scout from your computer. The "map" at the end of the document in the second link shows the public parcels (as of 1997) with lots and concession numbers. You will be able to use these with the City of Ottawa satellite images and the correct map layer in the first link to find the interesting public parcels and obtain GPS coordinates for the limits of these parcels. You can then enter these coordinates into your GPS and explore. As I mentioned though, once on the ground, you will see that it appears that some of the landowners or maybe some "hunt camps" that use the forest are a little liberal with their use of "private property" signs.

    The virtual "map" does not have any layers for anything west of Richmond that I see. Ottawa is horrible for this, just like the discharge of firearms info, they show that you can actually shoot in the suburbs because the maps are so out dated.

    Here it is, step by step.
    Click on Link #1 in post #6. Zoom in to the general area of the Marlborough forest. Now click on Aerial maps - this will give you satellite images. Then click on More Layers, Property parcels, and make sure you enter this menu item and click Township Lot Lables. You will see the property lines along with all the lots and concession numbers. With the info in link #2 in post#6, you will have a good idea of the public parcels by referring to the indicated lot and concession numbers in the map at the end of the document. The only thing missing from this is an updated listing of the public parcels from the City of Ottawa and a listing of which of these are under lease to someone. This last bit if information is what I would like to get, but I have not been successful.

    With regards to your comment about "west of Richmond", don't forget that this is a City of Ottawa site, so coverage ends once outside of the City of Ottawa. That is irrelelvent though if you are looking for information on the Marlborough forest.

    Richmond is still well within the city limits, I guess I would say south west of Richmond.

    I can see the concession lines, that is fine, the problem is that there is nothing accurate, as stated here by you as well.
    I guess I need to drive around there and take a look to actually get an idea of what is considered the property that is public compared to what was listed in 1997.

    I thought that you were pointing to this map to show a layer that contained the city of Ottawa public forests, which it does not.

    Thanks for the info, I am trying to figure out what areas I should look for houses about 30min from Ottawa and in WMU 64A. I will not be moving east or north, I would go west or south west of the city.

    It would be good to know if the properties are next to the public land or not, my dad is near public land where he is and it can complicate things with trespassing.

    If greatwhite can't find his map - I have a paper map of the Marlborough Forest and can get a copy for you. PM me your mailing address if you're interested.
