King Mountain trail is a short loop providing many open-rock viewing areas of the Ottawa Valley and even downtown Ottawa, including the Parliament Buildings. It has interpretive signs along the way describing local wildlife and plant life. Easy hike with some steep stairs and rocks.

Good trail but it is best to go left at the fork to give yourself a good challenge and save the view/lookout for last. We did it the opposite way and thus it was mostly downhill!

One of our favourite hikes! Great views at the top. We started at P7 and took trails 8 and 37 to the King Mountain trail. Trail 8 was a bit wet and muddy but it was easy to get around the mud. There was still a bit of snow on the King Mountain trail on the north side of the mountain.

Nice hike. Did it from P7 and it’s pretty good with a few nice views and a nice river.

Excellent trail wth great views of a small lake, the forest, the hills, and a fantastic viewpoint/Lookout on some farmlands, the surrounding Gatineau hills, and the horizon.

You can drive right up to the mountain for a short hike. We parked in Kingsmere and hiked up several adjoining trails to get there. Almost no bugs, trail is well marked and there are plenty of beautiful views at the top.

A pretty trail with lots of stairs and some interesting scrambles over exposed rock. My 4-year old was able to walk it with a bit of help and we had a nice view from the top. I would say its more moderate than easy.

A nice play to go to see the fall colours as an alternative to the Champlain Lookout or Pink lake. The parking lot is never as crowded.

Great trail. Easy with breathtaking views. Good for children as well:) maybe not elderly as there is a lot of stairs and incline but nothing strenuous.

I'd recommend doing this trail during the week if you can - its quite busy during the weekends! The view is beautiful. It's a fast and easy trail!

I had a great time going around this train when I went to Gatineau Park last week. It was a lot of fun and it's challenging for a larger guy like me but I really recommend it for the views.

Bring a camera.
