Nice trail overall. Well groomed and easy to walk on. The best views are at the start of the trail at Champlain Lookout. Most of the trail is mature forest, but lovely nonetheless.

The easy access drive-through belvedere look-out of Gatineau Park! Very romantic! Breathtaking! An absolutely must see! The nature trail is short yet challenging for beginners.

Would anyone actually get mad if a dog were not on leash?

nice walk through woods, but the best view of the valley might be from the parking lot

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

Started at P12 which was easy to find using google maps. Headed out uphill right away on Trail 40, then turned onto Trail 24. Turned right onto Trail 1B and followed the signs to the lookout. There were washrooms and garbage here as well as a parking lot. Took 1B back to Trail 18 which then turned into Trail 2 back to Trail 40 and the start. It was about 10.25km and 260m of elevation. Very beautiful trail, well marked and easy to follow.

Nice challenging trail through forest and clearings. Make sure you have bug spray. Parked at P12 by Meech lake followed trail 40 to trail 24 and 1B making a stop at Western (there are washrooms there :) then followed 1B to the Champlain lookout to enjoy the view. Trail 1B to trail 2 back to P12. Enjoyed it and will do it again.
