We did it December 8, 2019, icy trail from Barrier Lake to Garibaldi Lake, 3 hours up and almost the same amount of time down. Wonderful trail and beautiful lake in early winter. May go there again in deep winter.

The way up is already very exhausting for inexperienced hikers. The path was almost completely frozen from Barrier Lake and very slippery. We were without spikes on the way and unfortunately had to break off to the bridge to Garibaldi lake, because it was too smooth and therefore too dangerous. The lake seems almost completely frozen, but in some places still open.

this place was beautiful! very well maintained path and park! loved it!

The first 5kms of the hike had quite a bit of ice and I would strongly recommend studs or something similar for traction (crampons would be overkill as the ice is patchy). The remaining trail to the hut is covered in snow but the snow is compacted from other users. I brought snow shoes but did not use them at all. The lakes are covered in ice and snow. The hut was warm with a fire place, stove top, tables, hooks for drying clothes, and bunks.

Great trail, a lot of snow

A short and fun hike. Easy in difficulty with some moderate rocks to scramble over. Great views. With virtually no one else on the trails.

Great trail conditions on December 8. Very easy trail as there wasn’t much elevation for the first few kilometers. We were snowshoeing. Ok views and nothing spectacular. Certainly worth being out and about.

Very pleasant under the snow thanks to the crampons. Many people around the seigneurial lake, abandon the crowd and breathe away from the speakers! Admiration for the athletic form of some skiers or runners: what energy!

Very beautiful hike qd we did all the summits! Very frequented...

Very demanding but ... what a joy qd we did! Some delicate passages ... Quite frequented. Always noisy talkers who spread their privacy ... Real pipelettes! What a wound, sometimes! I specify that I am myself a female ...

Insufficient signage, we are misplaced. The beaver dam does not work below the water level. Not reassured. Need to find your way through the sun ...

Nice quiet hike between easy and intermediate .... the trail is well crampon but the loop of 5 km back would have been easier with snowshoes because he was not beaten! Trail of 9.78 km in 2:30 min.

Great little trail close to town for a little winter walk. We passed one other couple on a Saturday morning. The trail was not technically hard and had some beautiful winter scenery, with the snow and cedars. There is a little stream and the remains of an old homestead. My Fitbit said about 4 km to do the red, yellow and green trail from the parking lot. Will definitely be back in the spring and fall to see how the trail is different in the seasons. I imagine with the density it may be buggy. There were signs the yellow trail was closed due to flooding, so likely wet in some boggy areas. Red and yellow trail not accessible, but there is a small, >1K loop that appears to be groomed for some with mobility challenges. Great little find close to home. There was a small sign at the trailhead that said no dogs. Red and yellow trail were well marked.

My favorite trail in the Mauricie Park. A beautiful mix of lakes, streams and forest. There is a shelter halfway to warm up and have dinner.

Devon Nordic Ski Club maintains the winter ski trails through the Devon Golf Course and along the river. The location is sheltered from the wind and gets nice snow in the river valley setting. Classic trails are always set when the snow allows and there are some skate areas in the campground. There is a donation box at the parking lot and current conditions are posted on the Devon Nordic Ski Club FB page.

With crampons it's perfect !!

The 01/12 we left at 8:30 to plan wide with the darkness Regarding the road leading to the parking is 4x4 mode that can quickly become impractical if it snows and especially if the vehicle is not suitable because very steep descent with gravel Concerning the hike we were surprised at the number of hikers at least 5 groups (in weekend) Landscapes breathtaking 6km climb and the remaining 5 km are flat and descent before finding a hut to sleep or just take a break Rando feasible in 5h with classic hiking shoes (to be preferred with spikes) ATTENTION to the ice in the descent
