Nov 10, 2019 Pretty wet. Lots of downed trees, however still passable.

Trail conditions were good. This is a nice easy hike. Not the most scenic around this area but still nice - what's not to love about being in the woods.

Steeper trail for the usual Gatineau hills trails, but definitely a nice Sunday afternoon trail!

I am a novice mountain biker and I felt this was a good trail for me. Most difficult aspect of the trail was the large amount of wet leaves that were on the trail at the end of October - I would loss traction while climbing the steeper sections.

Trail is in good shape and not busy this time of year. There is a bit of easy off of official trails after Brown's cabin. Be careful on the rocks around Brown's lake - they can be slippery.

Current conditions of trail are very good. My wife and I did this trail in late October and did not encounter any other hikers so if you like solitude on your hikes then this is the time to do it. Trail is well marked.

Easy hike anyone can do. Photo ops include a foot bridge, still lake and the ruins that look like the perfect setting for a horror film.

This is not Trail 7. This is a loop from Parking Lot 7.

Beautiful, did 10km of “shorter” loop. Mainly path73. Next time I’d avoid path 50 (and lake phillipe because it’s a bit dull, the wide road especially not to my liking) and immediately go on 73 straight from the parking lot, and maybe do a loop from there. Anyhow the forest is amazing , very much autumn-like. The cave was 500m off the path, interesting to see but did not venture beyond the first metre in as it’s dark and creek flowing through fast. Easy trail, bit of ups and downs, otherwise smooth hike:)

Beautiful wide trails all the way. Breathtaking in the fall!

Nice hike and interesting ruins, but the Meech bridge to the waterfall is currently closed.

Gorgeous views and hardly any people!

Walked this trail with my son and 2 year old grandson . So beautiful .

Some great views of the lowlands. Beautiful colours!

Hello, I find this path interesting, on the other hand it is not easy for those who have knee problems. Many stairs.

It's a nice trail in the fall. The leaves changing and an easy trail.

Nice relatively short trail with varied terrain and some elevation changes. Gorgeous forest views and nice lookout deck with amazing vistas.

Nice morning trail ❤️

Great trail, especially during fall. Takes you along wide trails. You can easily make an extra loop if you would like to do a bit of Lac-Philip as well.

Super nice place to see beautiful fall colors. Easy trail, with a couple of hills.

The Lusk Cave trail that branches off trail 50 and eventually intersects with trail 54 is excellent. Trail 50 is essentially a gravel cycling path. Trail 54 and the scenic Lusk Cave trail are narrow, heavily wooded and varied terrain. Definitely worth the hike to explore the cave. Bring water shoes and a headlamp for the cave. The water can be quite deep at the exit (it was nearly up to.my waist today - Oct. 14) Park at the canoe rental parking lot (past Breton beach) and pick up trail 50 there. Take the righthand turn when you meet the junction with the Lusk Cave trail. This trail is the dotted line that runs parallel with trail 50.

Wide well groomed trails for easy walking. Detour to Rempart lookout along Trail 28 well worth it. Need to be careful to stay on the trail coming back from Trail 28 to Trail 3 as there are some fallen trees, very muddy, and trail difficult to follow. Lots of beautiful ponds and marshland along Trail 3. 1 km along the main road and some mountain biking along Trail 1.

Beautiful viewpoints along the trail. Pretty steep climb near the beginning and middle. It was raining which made the rocks a little slippery.

Great trail, but the Kings Mountain part does not allow dogs :s so we had to back track. If you have dogs do 23 and turn left on 8 and follow that back to 31.

very pleasant in mid october !
