The Luskville Falls Trail has a 290-metre climb up the rocky slope of the Eardley Escarpment. At the top you have a superb view of the Ottawa River Valley. Along the way, learn about plants and trees on the escarpment, the most spectacular ecosystem in Gatineau Park. Dogs and pets are not permitted on the Luskville Falls Trail.

Challenging hike, summit is somewhat underwhelming, but the hike itself it's very nice.

Super great fall or spring trail. The summer it is super crowded! The spring is great because the falls are full of water. This summer they ran dry.

I would say it should be rated difficult. I would do it again fine. But I would say it could be dangerous for the older, super young and unfit.
Plus I'd recommend the hike in the Spring when there may actually be a waterfall.
The views are breathtaking and it is a fun hike.

I will rate it difficult for most part of the trail. Very good excercise!

It was a very intense early morning sprint to the top. The rugged paths are great but there are plenty of ways up to increase difficulty.
Once we reached the top we then ran to McKinstry and back before the rapid descension.

Anytime after 10 am is way too over populated for it to be fun for experts playing with the trail.

This was a great hike up hills and climbing sharp rocks and jagged edges on the way up. this climb was a great workout and it was very much worth it. We all really enjoyed this hike.

This hike was really hard to me, it was climbing sharp rocks and jagged edges majority of the way up. Not many views because they are covered by trees. It definitely gave me a workout but it was worth it. Also happened to see a snake and chipmunks are everywhere for some reason.

Peut être difficile à monter pour personne débutante dans le hiking. Très beau au printemps, car avec la fonte de la neige la chute est plus impressionnante.

Nice little hike, easily reached from Ottawa. The path is clearly indicated, and there are some nice points of view when you reach the top. It's also good for families.
