Easy trail, done with dog and 2 kids (6years and 4 years).
Pretty view from the Calvaire, obstruct view from le Sommet.

Mon sentier préféré

A fun walk - great run too.

Easy trail for kids too. I would rate it as easy compared to other moderate ones.

Nice little trail within a national park. Trail is not hard at all...a few climbs at the most. View is pretty at the top of Calvaire d’Oka. Snow was really packed so crampons are best. No use for snowshoes. If you are hiking with little beware of coyote activity at night which leaves dead deer carcasses everywhere. Not a pretty sight...

This is a beautiful trail, whether you do it in the Summer or in the Winter. Some ups and downs, with beautiful views. A nice challenge - especially if you've been less active for a while and need to pump that heart! ;) I highly recommend it for intermediate hiking.

Sentier bien indiqué ! Beau paysage

Completed the entire loop of the lake starting form the P19 parking lot. Even with the warm weather and rain we had recently the trail is in excellent condition. Off trail the snow has a hard, crunchy surface but with plenty of soft powder underneath. Lake is well frozen and easily traversed. This is one of the better trails to snowshoe in the park with plenty of scenic views of the lake from the trail. Lots of hills and slopes so you'll want to use those lifters on your shoes to save your calves!

An nice snowshoe trek through the woods. Lots of steep slopes and inclines makes this a challenging trail. You'll want to use those lifters if you are snowshoeing. Not my favorite Gatineau Park trail. it runs too close to busy Hwy 5 so there's some noise pollution. No scenic lookouts and not much in the way of scenery other than the trees. Trail went close to a lake but not actually to the lake. Trail was quite narrow in most places rendering my poles useless.

Today we went to see if there was enough snow for snow shoes but there isn’t yet so we decided to hike trail 5 which includes the summit. Great work out and and we will return. I see some posts below that mention the trails are not well indicated. This must have been improved because there are signs everywhere.

belle piste mais elle aurait besoin d'un rafraîchissement

Trail was in pretty decent condition given how early in the season it is but still had some bare rock and tree roots. Only did half the loop as part of a longer snowshoe trek. Very popular with the snow bikers so be mindful as you venture out.

Le lac est magnifique. Beaucoup de personnes comme d’habitude dans le Parc. Assez facile cependant.

Not sure how this trail goes from 17 to 8 to 22 - there is no connection unless you go back on 1 then to 4 then to 22. Of course if you have your head down all the time following the app it might work but then you miss all the scenery which is the reason to be out there. All nice trails but not worth this combination

Icy conditions today. But the hike is always classic. More challenging than sentier des crêtes, but better views. Will need crampons soon.

A beautiful trail, I've done the trek more times than I can count and I was always glad I did, the view is beautiful in the fall and while the level is said to be hard, it always felt more like an intermediate difficulty trail to me.

Nice primitive trail. No epic summits or babbling brooks but an easy walk/run/bike through pleasant woods. A bit muddy for the first 10 minutes but then stays dry.

super belle endroit mais la rivière est super poluer

Absolutely love this trail. The lake is beautiful and it’s just long enough to feel like you got a decent workout. There are usually quite a few people on the trail, which is to be expected at the Gatineau Park. I would recommend it as a nice outing for the day. Lots of places you could sit and have a picnic after.

Closing for repairs on 22 October 2018 until an unknown date. You can’t bring your pets now, there’s a big sign by the entrance but no one seems to care.

Ma préférée ! Certains endroits du sentier sont tout simplement féeriques. La montée est quand même assez difficile, mais le sommet est majestueux.

Great short trail with a few nice viewsn

Too much bush and plants in the way

nice jogging location

Great trail with good views. Tricky enough trail with easy to find signs along the way.

Great ride, moderate difficulty, loop

Lots of constructions but still good
