Still my most-frequented and one of my favourite Trails ever!! Easy hiking, with a great view of Meech Lake along the way. The Ruins are basically a big playground and you can just walk all over the whole area, up the waterfalls, into the building, along the side of the water. Looks great from all angles and just stunning all year round! It's my favourite place to bring people who've never been to Gatineau park before. Love love love

Took the pup on this hike and he quite enjoyed it, as did I. Not a super long hike, but enjoyable and the pup definitely slept the whole way home in the car!

Wide trail with some moderate elevation changes. Great reward at the end with the ruins and small waterfalls. Not overly strenuous but quite enjoyable

Love taking the off trail way to the ruins. Right after the bridge follow the small path to the right beside the water. Leads to the ruins as long as you stay near the water. Wonderful views of the lake.
