Not sure how this trail goes from 17 to 8 to 22 - there is no connection unless you go back on 1 then to 4 then to 22. Of course if you have your head down all the time following the app it might work but then you miss all the scenery which is the reason to be out there. All nice trails but not worth this combination

It rained so it was muddy but not an issue with good hiking boots. Easy-moderate trail without too many technical sections.

Fantastic trail!!! Run counter clock!

We really enjoyed this trail but agree that you need to map out the trails in advance. We ended up tacking on an extra 3k to our hike because we took the wrong trail.

It’s pretty wet and muddy in certain areas right now but the fall colours are beautiful!

Excellent hike this time of year to see the colours. The trail was a bit muddy in a few spots but nothing serious. Counterclockwise loop is best if you prefer to hike UP the steep parts rather than DOWN. I recommend you get there very early because when I finished around 1100, the parking lot was full with cars waiting.

Fun hike, beautiful waterfalls!

Great short trail with a few nice viewsn

nice jogging location

Good walk for the area. Anticlockwise loop best as signed - that way you do the hardest part first

This trail works the buns! It also tuckered out our 2 year old black lab. The trail (especially trail 6) was quite scenic with some stunning views of the Ottawa valley. Highly recommend!

Big part of that itinerary is awesome, but there is some winter trails and therefore some bushwalking to do ! Maybe best in the winter !

Main challenge elevation. middle 3k has irregular trail features, views. Rest is multiuse trail.

1st half is steep, irregular. Perfect. Nice views, lovely creek. Sunny August day, so no bugs.

Great workout for a novice hiker. Lots of variation of terrain and scenery. A fun mother- daughter outing!

Thoroughly enjoyed this trail. Great look outs and much of it was shaded which was nice in the heat. Lots of friendly people too.

This is our family's regular go-to trail. Couple hours, really good uphill and nice fast way down. Great in all seasons, including on snowshoes after a good snowfall.
For the à Ottawa region, can't beat the wolf trail / Blanchet from P13!

Lots of amazing views

Beautiful hike that takes you to the waterfalls and Carbide Wilson Ruins. I went on a prime hiking day weather wise and it was a Sunday. I was lucky to get a spot in the parking lot. There were so many people on the first part of the trail that takes you to the Ruins. The 2nd part going to Meech Lake not nearly as crowded. I definitely recommend this trail but be prepared for some ups and downs.

Beau sentier. J’aime le fait qu’il donne accès à plusieurs autres sentiers pour ceux qui veulent faire un plus long trajet.

Easy, great views for pictures

This trail is awesome with some amazing views when you get to the top!

Great hike, a few ups and downs, last part near the ruins gets a bit tricky but otherwise the footing is easy. The ruins are great and are definitely worth checking out! They're surrounded by waterfalls from the nearby dam, very relaxing if you can get here when it's not busy! The trail was a bit wet and muddy in late May, so wear appropriate footwear. Great photography spot. Dog friendly.

The trail covers pretty much all I would like to test on the hiking boots. Very nice.

Fun trail but really steep at the start. I would only recommend for hikers who have at least a moderate fitness level. It’s switchbacks through the forest for the first part.

Nice easy loop - took about 30 to do it - so I pooped twice to make it a nice hour long. Great views up top. I’d say easy to easy intermediate. Go early as it gets busy around lunchtime.
