Great one to do with young kids. Nearby cafes or ice cream for after.

Nice walk for young family with dog.

Make sure to get trail shoes!

Great trail with nice view of lake. A little too easy for me so stopped to go into the caves. Best part was wading through the cavern waters and being underground!

Awesome trail for the family and handicapped accessible even. Well groomed and wide trail. Highly recommend it for a family outing or an easy trail through the forest. When I went though there was a bears in the area sign but I didn’t see any.

Belles pistes, très glissant quand c'est humide alors attention. Il y a de très belles vues en hauteur et le trajet est plus 5,4km de distance.

Was really amazing.... Mont kerr was really nice with rewarding view..

Trails bien entretenues, marqueurs éducatifs, jolis points de vues et petit parcours d’hébertisme près de l’entrée de Coleraine! À voir!

Nice trail for a leisurely hike. Easy to access, lots of parking and there are a few great restaurants and pubs close by to enjoy after the hike. The trail is fairly flat and the loop is easy to follow. There is also lots of great foliage and wildlife, which keeps the trail interesting.

I took my 13 year old and 7 year old on this hike. It was long but fairly easy. Going through the cave made it totally worth it but be prepared with water shoes and headlamp to get through the cave.

J'ai adoré la diversité des sentiers et la tranquillité! Vue à 360°! Ça vaut vraiment le 6$ par personne!! Le chalet Desjardins est très beau et propre!! il y a aussi des Yourtes à louer! ❤
je vous le recommende fortement!

Did this last weekend starting counterclockwise (so through the marsh first) and was stalked by a SWARM of deer flies for the first 4km or so, to the point where I almost turned back and threw in the towel at one point. I was wearing DEET bug spray but clearly it wasn't enough to deter the pests. I spent most of the 4km waving my arms around me CONSTANTLY to stop them from landing on me and biting, and by doing short running bursts to try and lose the cloud, which was very annoying and pretty exhausting but a good workout in hindsight considering the rest of the hike was very easy.

If you decide to do this hike, I'd recommend a bug net and thick hiking clothing to prevent them from biting through your clothes (Lululemon leggings are NOT adequate protection! as I learned the hard way...). Bringing a can of bugspray with you to spray as you go probably wouldn't be a bad idea either, unless you don't mind waving your arms constantly and bursting out in a sprint every now and again.

The bugs let up at about 5-6 kms in though and the hike is pretty nice after that. It's relatively flat so pretty easy but makes for a good trail run since it's pretty well worn (not too many snags or rocks).

Best part: Bring your bathing suit and jump in the lake to freshen up at the end of your hike!

A bit busy mid-May. Easy for a beginner hiker. Nice places to stop.

Did the hike clockwise and loved it. Ended up doing 12k by time the excursions off-loop were done. Was absolutely beautiful! The end maybe easier for sure but a nice reward along the lake. That and a momma dear with her 2 little ones! There were bear sightings today by some other people closer to the campground FYI.

Awsome

Too easy for me but would be nice for a family. Note that the actual cave is actually closed down for the majority of the year.

I agree with the other reviews - pretty simple trail, usually lots of visitors, etc. But it is easy to get to and nice for a Sunday afternoon walk in nature. And right next to it is the little village of Old Chelsea which has a pub, some restaurants with outdoor patios, a new ice cream parlour and a bakery with excellent local bread (if any is left when you get there).

Very leisurely stroll through some fairly nice woods. Definitely not a hike, and not many viewpoints or points of interest. But would be good for wheelchairs or strollers etc.

Maybe not do it again but still glad I did. It's a nice long walk, but in the end reaaaally easy. Not too crowded if you go for the loop.

One of the best trails in the area just make sure to bring a headlamp and clothes you don't mind getting wet in!

Fun and easy early season hike. Parked at P19. Gorgeous afternoon with lots of options to extend the length.

The sugarbush trail is a heavily used trail near Chelsea, Quebec.

It's great for young kids in all seasons. In the winter it is one of the only winter walking trails in Gatineau park (most of the other trails are restricted to cross country skiing in the winter). In the spring it blooms with thousands of trilliums. There is a cute little river where you can take some nice photos.

The main downside of this trail (hence the 3-star rating) is that it is a bit too popular for my liking.
