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.

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.
