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.

Was great, but we didn’t notice the part where you break off to actually head up to the lookout. We kept walking too far and ended up doing the entire loop back to the road, about 10k in total. I’d recommend keeping an eye on the AllTrails app while you’re going so you don’t miss the lookout spot. It’s only about a 15-20 minute walk from the road

Great short trail with a few nice viewsn

Too much bush and plants in the way

nice jogging location

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

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.

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 view never gets old! We live very close to this trail and hike it quite frequently with our pug!

Great trail! Lots of inclines and descents but they’re pretty quick and manageable. Look out spots are all well worth the trek in! Enjoy!

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

Great hike, trails are well marked. The Skywalk trail lookout is worth the detour - we just did the small loop and came back to the main trail.

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

Great trail with nice view of lake. A little too easy for me so stopped to go into the caves. Best part was wading through the cavern waters and being underground!

This trail is awesome with some amazing views when you get to the top!

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

Great trail for a nice hike in the woods.

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 trail that takes a few hours. some difficult bits but mostly is a good hike. has some great views along the way and plenty of wildlife.

We enjoyed this hike and it provided a great workout. It was steep in spots, and rocky, but offered two lovely lookout areas that were well worth the climb. Pleasantly surprised with this trail. Hardly any bugs (August).

Great challenging hiking trail with some good lookout. Saw different animal during our hiking. Bring bug spray. The start is a bit hard but the views are worth it.

Buggy and views are just so-so.

Difficult hike for beginners/intermediates. One gorgeous lookout- very pretty hike through forest. Trail markings difficult to track- went off path a few times. Bring bug spray! Including breaks and stop for a picnic, took around 5.5 hours.

A great trail network. Can be quite challenging in parts, so be prepared for a cardio workout. Wear plenty of bug spray.

I’ve done this trail twice now and I really enjoy it. When I hiked it at the end of June the bugs were quite bad. However, this time we didn’t experience any bugs. Today we hiked in the pouring rain, the rocks were a little slippery in spots, and it was a bit muddy. A great trail nonetheless.
