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

Trail is closed due to snow

Nice trails, beautiful views

Beautiful low-intermediate trail with amazing trees and shrooms! Did it in winter and end of summer, very different hike. Not many point of views but still a must.

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.

Long trail...nice views! Very very muddy!

Did the loop back at the 4.5 mark which made this a fantastic 9km hike. Loved the moss walls and views.

Big part of that itinerary is awesome, but there is some winter trails and therefore some bushwalking to do ! Maybe best in the winter !

Amazing hike!!! Narrow trail with rocks, tree stumps, a little mud...exactly like I love them. Worth it if you like a good long hike. Just be careful as trail now offers a loop to go back to start point.

The view is Beautiful !

Great trail for a nice hike in the woods.

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

Diverse, scenic and moderately challenging with steep inclines and stairs. The view from atop
King Mountain is worth seeing as well as the the many layers of Bridal Falls. Pink Lake was mildly busy with many people under-prepared for the terrain. Definitely worth exploring as individual sectors or together as one endeavor.

Nice hike with views along the path

Long hike with no view at the end

Modified the trek to make it easier to follow. Beautiful tour of pink a lake. Moderate and gradual incline to MacKenzie King Estate. Downhill wide trail back to trail 7. An 11k trek total. Nice Saturday afternoon stroll.

Great challenge for trail runners

Buggy and views are just so-so.

Nous avons fait le parcours complet du camping de la sablonnière au camping de la sablonnière en parcourant les 3 derniers kilomètres sur le bord la route avec les autos.

Cela nous as permis de refaire le plein d'eau à l’accueil du parc

Not good for trail running

I thought it was challenging enough with beautiful views.

(French will follow)

Not a bad trail in itself, but it was a bit boring.

It goes up and down, but there's not much to see.

I won't qualified this trail as good choice for those who likes the calm of the nature or the hikers who are less interested into crowded place.
In my opinion, this is more like a commercial trail or a good place for those who seek for a decent introduction to the hiking field.

La randonnée en soit n'est pas mauvaise, mais elle s'avère quelque peu ennuyant.

Le sentier monte et descend sans nécessairement offrir des points se vue intéressant.

Je me recommenderais pas cette randonnée pour ceux qui aiment profiter du calme de la nature ou les randonneurs préférant les senteurs moins achalandés.

Cette randonnée axe davantage sur les aspects commerciaux, mais reste quand même une activité intéressante pour ceux et celles qui veulent s'initier à la marche en montagne.

Great 9.5km moderate trail if you use two vehicles to avoid the 3km road walk that completes the loop. Nice woods trail with three nice viewing sites with views to the west. Starting at the south trailhead allows you to finish the walk with a swim in the sandy shored river.

Montée modérée a facile par endroit. Le grand brûlé est de 6.80 à partir du bas des pistes de ski.
