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.

Gorgeous but too many stairs. I prefer more natural terrain.

Not well marked for the entrance. We actually started at a gated road more by the highway & the first P15 sign. We had a 10 year old & a 5 year old with us. It was muddy/ somewhat rocky and some steep climbs. We loved it! Long walk back to our car but it was ok. It ended up being about 8k and took us 2h53.

Excellent hike this time of year to see the colours. The trail was a bit muddy in a few spots but nothing serious. Counterclockwise loop is best if you prefer to hike UP the steep parts rather than DOWN. I recommend you get there very early because when I finished around 1100, the parking lot was full with cars waiting.

Relaxing walk by the water, fairly flat. A few nice bridges, beaches, picnic areas and a playground. Lots of parking; a couple different lots.

It reminds me Banff or Lake Louise. Lovely trail.

Good walk for the area. Anticlockwise loop best as signed - that way you do the hardest part first

This trail works the buns! It also tuckered out our 2 year old black lab. The trail (especially trail 6) was quite scenic with some stunning views of the Ottawa valley. Highly recommend!

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

You need to park on the gravel road, so stop wherever you see a trail head. I started at p15. Nice lake with camping spot at far end.

Main challenge elevation. middle 3k has irregular trail features, views. Rest is multiuse trail.

1st half is steep, irregular. Perfect. Nice views, lovely creek. Sunny August day, so no bugs.

Great workout for a novice hiker. Lots of variation of terrain and scenery. A fun mother- daughter outing!

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.

Thoroughly enjoyed this trail. Great look outs and much of it was shaded which was nice in the heat. Lots of friendly people too.

This is our family's regular go-to trail. Couple hours, really good uphill and nice fast way down. Great in all seasons, including on snowshoes after a good snowfall.
For the à Ottawa region, can't beat the wolf trail / Blanchet from P13!

Lots of amazing views

Easy trail. Lots of man made wooden steps.

The trail covers pretty much all I would like to test on the hiking boots. Very nice.

Nice easy loop - took about 30 to do it - so I pooped twice to make it a nice hour long. Great views up top. I’d say easy to easy intermediate. Go early as it gets busy around lunchtime.

This trail is a 9k. and not for beginners it’s hard.

Scenic and an easy walk.

Enjoyable summer hiking trail, with enough short, steep, hills to make it more than just an easy walk. Yesterday there were summer cycling camps using the shared part (#1) with some pretty terrified looking youngsters and we had to watch out and move off the trail a number of times. #6 section is "hikers only" and worth the extra time. The views are spectacular.

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!
