For toddlers this is a 5 star trail. One half of the trail has old growth trees and the other half has newer growth. There are interpretative panels explaining the different trees. It's a short trail but beautiful in the fall. Very gentle and perfect for little kids.

Unfortunately it seems the trail has been closed the last few years and the parking lot is blocked off. Maybe Gatineau Park is trying to regenerate the trail?
