Relaxing hike on a well maintained and marked trail with plenty of lookouts.

This is a great trail if you just want a casual morning or afternoon hike that is in a really natural setting, away from all city stress, with panoramic glimpses of the glorious Ottawa River against a forest background.

Great short hike with kids.

Starts off a bit boring with a boggy young forest but then gets interesting with a boardwalk, some old lime kiln ruins (almost gone), a lookout over a swamp and nice hardwood forest with interesting rocks scattered about. I like the trail guide that's available at the start. There were very few people on the trail when we went and once you were away from the road it was quite peaceful. Good signage except for one tricky part near the end (take the path to the right!) A real walk in the woods

Great place to take anyone with limited mobility, since several of the trails are very smooth. Others provided an easy walk with enjoyable views. Not spectacular views, but just great views of the river and some really big trees. It was very well maintained with clean facilities, lots of signs, maps etc.

Had a quiet winter walk on the Old Voyageur trail and the Miner trail with my wife and 6 year old daughter. We were practically the only ones there!

The trees are mostly deciduous. The trails are pretty flat (flat enough to be able to pull a sled) although the Miner trail is a bit rockier. There were pretty views of the Ottawa river and lots of signs of beavers.

A nice easy walking experience. I didn't see any ski trail grooming although the park website says you can cross country ski in here.

Beautiful trail. Well maintained. About 4.5 km moderate trail through woodlands.

Great trails. Pretty easy with lots of views of the Ottawa river. Multiple loops to do just the right amount of hiking that you wish to do.

Great trail. Very Scenic. I go there often and can choose from a variety of loops depending on desired distance. Not very busy. Usually Light traffic, if any. A wonderful place to experience.

Very well marked trails. A very enjoyable afternoon.
