Gorgeous but too many stairs. I prefer more natural terrain.

Great one to do with young kids. Nearby cafes or ice cream for after.

Gorgeous in the Spring, around Mother’s Day, to see thousands of trilliums and other spring flowers.

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.

I did this trail with my dog on a Thursday morning. It was very foggy out and we only ran into one person (also with a dog) on the entire trail. I hiked from the Lauriault Trail to the Waterfall Trail, down to the waterfall, then through the tunnel and back to the parking lot via the Mulvihill trail. The entire loop took less than an hour and half, walking slowly and stopping to take lots of photos. Beautiful foliage this time of year! Definitely wear boots as there are many wet areas along the trail. If I do this trail again, instead of taking the Mulvihill trail back I will detour through the Mackenzie King Estate. Highly recommend!

Great short trail with a few nice viewsn

Too much bush and plants in the way

nice jogging location

It reminds me Banff or Lake Louise. Lovely trail.

This trail works the buns! It also tuckered out our 2 year old black lab. The trail (especially trail 6) was quite scenic with some stunning views of the Ottawa valley. Highly recommend!

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

Nice easy hike with lots of info graphics about the unique ecosystem of pink lake!

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.

Main challenge elevation. middle 3k has irregular trail features, views. Rest is multiuse trail.

Nice walk for young family with dog.

Perfect hike for the family. My 5 and 7 year olds were able to complete this hike with ease, and were kept interested by the turtles, tadpoles, fish and frogs that we saw.

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!

Beau sentier. J’aime le fait qu’il donne accès à plusieurs autres sentiers pour ceux qui veulent faire un plus long trajet.

Fun walk with our dog!

Easy trail. Lots of man made wooden steps.

Awesome trail for the family and handicapped accessible even. Well groomed and wide trail. Highly recommend it for a family outing or an easy trail through the forest. When I went though there was a bears in the area sign but I didn’t see any.

Short and easy trail through the forest. Unfortunately the parking lot at the trail head is blocked off and I hear it’s been blocked off for a while. I’m not sure why. I had to park on Grives and access the trailhead from there by taking a trail at the side of Chemin de Montaigne. Nice trail to get there though.

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

Enjoyable summer hiking trail, with enough short, steep, hills to make it more than just an easy walk. Yesterday there were summer cycling camps using the shared part (#1) with some pretty terrified looking youngsters and we had to watch out and move off the trail a number of times. #6 section is "hikers only" and worth the extra time. The views are spectacular.

A great trail to try if you’re looking for something quick and interesting. Although I would consider this trail “easy”, proper footwear is definitely a good idea because of the steep climbs and stairs. Not accessible.

Worth checking out if you want a scenic yet easy coasting Trail. The lookout is worth the time and the waterfall is beautiful. There are some interesting aspects to the layout of the trail which make it enjoyable.

Beautiful scenery of the lake and surrounding forest. Wide open trails/roads make the terrain easy to manage. Biking the trail is more ideal as there are long stretches of flat open space.
