It’s unbelievable how much bugs there was over there, no surprise the trail goes around a swomp. Unless you bring a ton of bugs spray, avoid this trail. Note that we did this trail today (may 21st). There is also a lot of mud ( as the trail is around a swomp). The scenery are not so impressive. Good trail for workout but doesn’t worth the mud and bugs.

Approx a 6km loop starting and finishing at P7 which took 2hrs in total. Reasonably well sign posted with a few ups and downs along the way.

Trail is a little muddy in spots and there are lots of rocks so it could be slippery. Bugs were out May long weekend and we were glad to have bug spray. This is a great Trail for amateur hikers looking for more of a challenge and workout. Took us 3 hours. Great views and Trail is well marked for most part.

Majestic walk. One of the best in Gatineau Park. My K9 and I loved it.

Two steep hills. A great trail. Nice views of lake. The ruins and waterfall make the trek worth it.

Lovely hike! Wish I had time to go further out but it was a great trail to get in some exercise and explore. The ruins was neat with the water falls next to it made for great photos!

Fairly easy walk out to the ruins. Dogs are allowed on the trail. Ruins are worth the trip!

Just two scenery points along the path. First half a bit easy

Not hard but really the reward at the top is worth it!

Amazing vue of the Outaouais region on the top! Beautiful trail!

Is like very cool

Great workout with some great views!!!

Don't need snowshoes this time of year. Winter hiking boots are adequate. When starting from P13, after about 15 minutes there'll be a fork in the trail. Take Mahinga trail which will eventually ascend. The trail path follows close to the edge, allowing for some wonderful vistas along your route.

Excellent and challenging trail for year round hiking or snowshoeing in the winter.

Great winter trail

Good little trail but...NO DOGS ALLOWED

Me and my husband had a great time...its a nice trail..the view on the top is amazing....

I love this Trail (in every season!!) Two amazing lookouts (and very different), the sounds of small streams running through a beautiful forest... with a variety of levels of difficult throughout the Trail. It’s about 8.5km total, I think. I recommend turning RIGHT at the fork (near the beginning of the Trail head), to aim towards Mahingan Lookout first. It’s a steep uphill climb for 2km from there. Then a shorter easier 2k walk to the next Lookout, and then a gradual and longer 3.5km walk back to the Trailhead. I also recommend going for both summer hiking and winter hiking(or snowshoeing in my case) to see how awesome but different the landscape is!

One of the best trails in Gatineau park. Great views along the Ottawa valley at the half-way point really add to an already enjoyable walk through the forest. Crosses a few streams and can therefore be wet at times - be prepared!

Great hike!

Beatiful trail with unseasonably warm weather. At the end was able to cool off in Meech Lake.

Great view, especially in the fall.

Went midday during Fall Rhapsody and it was pretty busy but less so on the actual Skyline loop. There are two fairly decent sized free parking lots at the base and many other connecting trails all around.

Beautiful fall colours in the forest!

I love this trail! I take my dog here all the time and she loves this trail as well. Everyone I meet on this trail is super friendly.

Challenging and wet at times, but very beautiful.
