More of a moderate hike. The winter trail portion isn't very used, but has tree markings which will be useful once more leaves fall. Some plants had torns that can scratch, but I still did the hike in shorts and would again. No mosquitoes at that time.

Great trail, I wouldn't rate it as hard.

Mix of hard pack trail, bush trail and trail that are tons of rocks. About half and half mountain bike and hiking.

The bugs were terrible on this hike and we got lost due to the lack of trail signs. You want to follow trail 73 - but there are some forks that all point to Lusk Caves, so it’s hard to know the right direction. By the time I was willing to pull out my phone and brave the mosquitos, we had been walking the wrong way for quite some time. We decided just to head back - but still managed to get 10km in. Will try this again with better bug spray next time.

Very enjoyable hike of moderate difficulty. Some nice views of the lake but expect to spend a lot of time in a green tunnel. Picnic benches available and two rest areas for breaks but keep in mind it's very buggy so you might not enjoy these spots as much. Southeast end of the lake has a nice beach that makes for a nice break area as well.

A moderately long, moderately challenging hike in the hills around Lac Philippe. A nice workout. I expected better views, but you only see the lake along the NW & SE sections where the route goes along the shore. There’s a rest area on the south end with benches, a fire pit, and moss-covered stone half-walls (good for extra seating when dry). Large “Trail Closed” signs on the west side of the lake for no apparent reason - my guess is they’re left over from winter. Overall one of the more interesting, varied hikes in Gatineau.

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!

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

We started at Parent beach and headed south on the south west side of the lake. It was lovely and quiet once we moved away from the lake. As we rounded the end of the lake and started the north east side, the path was much more over grown and we quickly turned around because of poison ivy. We do not know how far the poison ivy went. We returned​ on the south east side close to the lake where there were many more people.
