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

Not sure how this trail goes from 17 to 8 to 22 - there is no connection unless you go back on 1 then to 4 then to 22. Of course if you have your head down all the time following the app it might work but then you miss all the scenery which is the reason to be out there. All nice trails but not worth this combination

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.

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.

Too much bush and plants in the way

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.

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.

long but nice hike, bring a wide brimmed hat or cap for sure for flies

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

We went over Easter weekend and it was quite snowy/icy still making it moderately difficult- we saw a couple other hikes who were all wearing snowshoes, so consider proper footwear/gaiters. The trail head marked on this map is very easy to miss and is off a very narrow street with NO parking. We started on the SE side of the trail, extending the loop by about 2 or 3K. The trail itself isn't marked very well so BRING A MAP! Other than that, it's a beautiful hike with spectacular forests. Pink lake is pretty small itself and you can easily tack on a quick lake loop with this hike. Picturesque and difficult in a good way.

great trail in wakefield! For a good workout!

My favourite hiking trail in the Ottawa area. Beautiful in the fall!

Just walked the first part of the trail from p17 (trail 53) - about 3.5 km in and then back - with my 7 year old. As I only did part of the route perhaps my 3-star rating is a bit low (I never got to Lac Philippe) Was mostly pleasant forest with gentle up-hills. The trail was quite wide and is under repair due to recent flooding. A decent amount of mountain bikers but they were always respectful.

Very nice, quiet trail. Sometimes the trail is a little hard to find/follow.

A very nice 20k trail run. About half is quite technical.Steep hills on the first half, easier on the 2nd half. Nice views of Lac Philippe from the less used east side of the lake. Close to Wakefield, lots of nice cafes for after the run!

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.
