I have done this trail a few times but only in the snow. It is refreshingly not too easy with plenty of ups and downs. Not that scenic since there's just a lot of forest but still nice.

We went over Easter weekend and it was quite snowy/icy still making it moderately difficult- we saw a couple other hikes who were all wearing snowshoes, so consider proper footwear/gaiters. The trail head marked on this map is very easy to miss and is off a very narrow street with NO parking. We started on the SE side of the trail, extending the loop by about 2 or 3K. The trail itself isn't marked very well so BRING A MAP! Other than that, it's a beautiful hike with spectacular forests. Pink lake is pretty small itself and you can easily tack on a quick lake loop with this hike. Picturesque and difficult in a good way.

My favourite hiking trail in the Ottawa area. Beautiful in the fall!

beautiful views. easy and nice length of hike.

Was a beautiful hike, fairly easy but with freshly fallen snow it gave us a good workout. We used Trail 67 to get to the 66 loop, so ended up being about 5.5k in total. It was cool to cross over a cross-country skiing trail and watch them for a bit (impressive). It is a beautiful forest trail, however my only issue is that you’re so close to major roads that instead of hearing nature - you hear cars driving by and people talking.
