Explore the most popular mountain biking trails near Gatineau with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

Diverse, scenic and moderately challenging with steep inclines and stairs. The view from atop
King Mountain is worth seeing as well as the the many layers of Bridal Falls. Pink Lake was mildly busy with many people under-prepared for the terrain. Definitely worth exploring as individual sectors or together as one endeavor.

Modified the trek to make it easier to follow. Beautiful tour of pink a lake. Moderate and gradual incline to MacKenzie King Estate. Downhill wide trail back to trail 7. An 11k trek total. Nice Saturday afternoon stroll.

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.
