King Mountain trail is a short loop providing many open-rock viewing areas of the Ottawa Valley and even downtown Ottawa, including the Parliament Buildings. It has interpretive signs along the way describing local wildlife and plant life. Easy hike with some steep stairs and rocks.

Great trail. Easy with breathtaking views. Good for children as well:) maybe not elderly as there is a lot of stairs and incline but nothing strenuous.

I'd recommend doing this trail during the week if you can - its quite busy during the weekends! The view is beautiful. It's a fast and easy trail!

I had a great time going around this train when I went to Gatineau Park last week. It was a lot of fun and it's challenging for a larger guy like me but I really recommend it for the views.

Bring a camera.
