Facile et une belle vu, sa vaut le détour

Really nice little hike/walk with a great view! Nice for warm days since mostly in shade. Definitely wear good shoes since it is rocky in places, and I would not necessarily do it in heavy rain etc etc. Entrance of beginning of trail just next to the bathrooms in the upper parking lot.

Amusant!

Première fois sur ce sentier qui est très bien maintenu. Il y’a 3 très beau points de vue le long de la montée au Pic a l’Ours, et nous avons arrêter 3 fois pour savourer la splendeur du paysage. Ça nous a pris 2 heures 45 minutes pour la montee, et 2 heures pour la descente. Je classifierai ce sentier d’intermédiaire a difficile, car il y’a quand même des endroits très très rocailleux et à pic. Je la referais certainement à l’automne lorsque les couleurs seront à l’apogée. Je recommande ce sentier et ne vous laisser pas intimider par l’envergure du sentier. J’ai vu du monde de tout âge et de ability au long de la montée....un pas à la fois.

Relatively easy hike with well groomed trails and a short portion along the road.. add in the look out along trail 28 for sure!!

verry nice trail do it 2 times a week

I would consider this more an intermediate trail. Bit of a walk from the parking lot to even start the hike(about 15 mins) but the trail itself is nicely maintained. Lots of rocks so I would reccomend hiking with your poles. there's a few good spots for views at the top but nothing spectacular, though I'm sure it would be a pretty hike/summit in the fall. Got to the summit of pic de l'ours and back in about 4 hours. Since I'm coming from montreal I'd rather spend the travel time going to the Adirondacks...its about the same distance. happy trails!!!

Trail closed along the east side of the lake, presumably due to poison ivy along the trail.

Very buggy, lots and lots of mosquitoes, but beautiful trail. Come early to mid may to see all the flowers in bloom. Not very difficult... a few up climbs that are steep but very doable for someone in very average physical condition

Intermediate level

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.

Really lovely trail. Definitely not hard. We were looking for some elevation and this only had a little bit. And the view trails were closed for repairs. But the whole walk was lovely.

Super sentier, magnifiques point de vue.

Approx a 6km loop starting and finishing at P7 which took 2hrs in total. Reasonably well sign posted with a few ups and downs along the way.

Les gens à l’accueil nous ont bien conseillé sur notre trajet, la randonnée était impeccable, très très agréable 4h passée dans les sentiers. Les chiens en laisse sont acceptés, et tous les chiens croisés l’étaient, c’était vraiment génial.

Vraiment un beau sentier!

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.

Quick and easy trail, great for my older dog and I

great trail in wakefield! For a good workout!

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

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.

The Parc linéaire des Bois-Francs is a 77km trail of pleasure. The starting point is near Tingwick and the point of destination is Dosquet. I rode the trail on a mountain bike. It took me two days to ride it. I was riding with one friend and we have slept in a hostel for the night. I detoured sometimes to visit tourist places in the region. It is a must. If you want to see the full trail, visit the website: www.parclineairebf.com. I have created as well the route from Plessisville to Dosquet.

Great view, especially in the fall.

Went midday during Fall Rhapsody and it was pretty busy but less so on the actual Skyline loop. There are two fairly decent sized free parking lots at the base and many other connecting trails all around.

Easy hike but very rocky. you need to have your eyes on the path at all times.

Very nice, but definitely not a hard one. On top at the Calvaire there is an infestation of ladybugs. Never seen as much before... and they bite...
