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.

Great little trail for beginners with some neat history.

This is probably the most "boring" trail in Gatineau Park - at least compared to the other trails in the park. It's very flat. What's nice about the trail is that its very easy so good for little kids. Also the interpretive panels tell you some of the history of the area and how the area is being reclaimed by the forest.

A nice thing about this trail is that you can easily get to it because even if the Champlain parkway is closed, the trail is accessible.
