Gatineau, Ottawa Map

One of the most beautiful trails I have been on in the park so far! Really tough going up but it was all worth it for sure. Definately would do it again!

This is a tough trail. It goes straight up right from the start and doesn't level off until you hit the fire tower at the top. It's very rocky so wear hiking shoes. You'll get a good work out. Also, it is more like 5 km rather than the 4 stated.

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!

The trail was awesome, bring some nuts or seeds with you and the squirrel, chipmunks and birds will literally eat from your hand, one of the nicest kid friendly walks in Ottawa!!!?!?!?

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!

Really nice walk! Took me around 2.5 hours for the route provided. It’s definitely not dog friendly right at the start/finish but I’d say that 3/4 of the route was dog friendly. I parked at the Old Quarry Trail parking lot and there were signs saying no dogs on the trails but I had my dog on leash the whole time and no one said anything. It wasn’t overly scenic, but it was a nice forest walk! There’s lots of ways to make the walk shorter or longer so I’d definitely do this one again!

Really beautiful trail, but very rocky, would not recommend going alone unless you're very experienced, just to be safe. Gorgeous view from the lookout

Lots of amazing views

Easy trail for a family with lots of options to make it shorter if required. Watch the map closely as there are lots of intersections

Beau sentier. J’aime le fait qu’il donne accès à plusieurs autres sentiers pour ceux qui veulent faire un plus long trajet.

Fun walk with our dog!

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.

Short and easy trail through the forest. Unfortunately the parking lot at the trail head is blocked off and I hear it’s been blocked off for a while. I’m not sure why. I had to park on Grives and access the trailhead from there by taking a trail at the side of Chemin de Montaigne. Nice trail to get there though.

Great trail for a nice hike in the woods.

Great place to take a family walk within the city limits.

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

Great spot to hike! The views can be a little bit obstructed however. Would be beautiful for snowshoeing during the winter.

Great relaxing hike and so much to see. 7.2km Bugs only on last 200m. Would definately hike it again!

Beautiful and not too crowded. Big scramble up the rocks at the beginning had us sweating hard and sucking air - but it’s worth it!

Hiking boots are highly recommended- we did this trail in runners (we misjudged the terrain!), and while nobody rolled an ankle, I imagine it happens a lot up here.

Once you hike past the rocks, the trail becomes a more mellow walk/hike. We opted to go further than the loop and up to the fire tower - views were a little anti-climactic but not bad enough to spoil the hike. All in all a great walk.
