Nice easy hike with lots of info graphics about the unique ecosystem of pink lake!

Perfect hike for the family. My 5 and 7 year olds were able to complete this hike with ease, and were kept interested by the turtles, tadpoles, fish and frogs that we saw.

Easy trail. Lots of man made wooden steps.

Scenic and an easy walk.

A great trail to try if you’re looking for something quick and interesting. Although I would consider this trail “easy”, proper footwear is definitely a good idea because of the steep climbs and stairs. Not accessible.

Beautiful short trail with lots of stairs and amazing views of Pink Lake!

Great place to exercice or to look at the panorama. There are a couple of lookouts.

simple nice trail

great easy loop for all ages.

Pink Lake is as others describe, a beautiful short hike. However, As an overweight 51 year old, I found it ..... more difficult than easy. I'm not unfamiliar with hiking at all having been in the US Army but compared to Carbide Willson ruins that are listed as moderate, I found Pink Lake harder than it was just due to the MANY stairs on PL trail. It is a wide trail, clearly marked. but the STAIRS! Go, enjoy just be prepared.

A bit busy with tourists but absolutely love this trail. Early morning before 9 or after 4pm is best time to visit.

Great trail. Can be very busy at times

My favorite trail in the Gatineau park. You can do the loop twice since it’s short, but it’s a good workout because of all the stairs.

Nice easy trail to get outside with people who aren't super hikers. Has beautiful views in all seasons. Way too many people on weekends. A light hike/walk - there are stairs too. Done this many times.

Love this place :)

Not much of a challenge but very scenic. It is quite busy with families, children, and tourists stopping to take pictures and can be muddy after rain.

I biked up to this trail from downtown Ottawa but forgot to bring a lock forcing me to carry the bike around the lake. This was not a problem as the trail and stairways are wide enough to do this while still being able to pass others. Beautiful views and plenty of information and signage.

Great trail for a beginner like me! Lots of stairs but the view alone is worth it!

Great walking trail with plenty of elevation and great views. Walked it once then ran it.

wow, je l'ai fait en automne mais doit y retourner en été car l'eau doit être plus clair encore mais tranquille comme endroit reconnecte avec la nature

Great short trail if you're looking for something casual and leisurely. Not long and not difficult, great for when you have a group of people because everyone can keep up and enjoy the view.
