Beautiful experience walking from fall scenery into full on winter wonderland 1 hour into the hike. Lots of ice on the path. Hiking poles would be helpful for nervous hikers. The view from the look out makes for a great place to eat some warm soup before heading out. The drive to the parking lot is 30km within the park and is littered with potholes, so drive slowly and pay attention or a little car could end up with a flat tire or roughed up suspension.

on Le Scotora Trail

Pierres roulantes sur quelques sections du parcours. 70% du parcours se fait sans se soucier du prochain pas. Cela permet de regarder les montagnes, la rivière, les petits lacs et les barages de castors! La récompense est superbe, avec la belle vue sur la vallée! Bien que classé difficile, c'est un parcours qui se fait très bien pour le randonneur moyen.

Beautiful view at the end!

La fameuse Scotora en automne! Superbe rando.

8km up, 8km down pour environ 2h45. Assez facile, beaucoup de gens dans la trail qui se disent "bonjour, bonjour, bonjour"

Belle randonnée, sentier dans les racines,roches et en élévation presque toujours continue. Le deuxième belvédaire en vaut la chandelle, la vue est magnifique!

Bonne montée mais se fait très bien. Très achalandée les fins de semaine. Sentier majoritairement en forêt, sans point de vue particulier, exception faite des deux belvédères aménagés.

Sentier super facile ascension vraiment smooth avec vue magnifique à voir absolument :)

Nice view, fun to do!

A decent easy walk through a forest area alongside a creek

Peaceful walk in a forest setting

Excellent hike. It's quite a climb to get to the top but it's satisfying and worth it for the view. The lower viewpoint is also well worth the detour and a great spot for lunch as it's quieter than the top.
We went on a Saturday and it was pretty busy so better to go on a weekday if you prefer to see less people.
Would definitely recommend this hike for visitors to the national park.

Awesome view, saw 3 beavers, worth the time to get to the top

One of the best national parks. Great hike, mostly uphill but rewarding views (2) at the end. Would recommend to do kayaking on the river.

Lovely trail for the whole family. A little steep at times but even my three year old was able to happily walk the trail.

Bien!

This was a beautiful walk through the woods and a long gradual climb. As mentioned before, there weren't any other viewpoints on the trail, but the scenery was amazing all the way up regardless (forests, creeks, ponds, cliffs etc.) We spotted a couple of beavers as well. Recommended!

I loved this trail. Not busy at all on a weekday mid-day. We got to see beavers and beautiful cascades on the way. The landscapes change all the time, which made it interesting. Beautiful little spot on top to have lunch. Worth it!

Fun trail while in the lush forest. Nice climb for a few hundred vertical feet. Too much of running on the road counted as trail, but wide river along side is a plus. Beautiful serene area.

Rocky and beautiful! Great view
