Mixed feelings. First things first, this is a 16 km hike back and forth from the beginning of the trail and not 14 km. Also at one point you have to walk on a beaver damn and go into the woods to eventually get back on the trail. Plus a lot of fallen trees (10 +) that you have to get over. That being said my girlfriend and I enjoyed the effort and challenge. Finally 2 lakes and nice water falls along the trail.

Minus the welcoming horse flies then the tic phobia test through the tall grass and then the bridge that was adopted by the beaver dam forcing us to walk in calf high water then the overgrown foliage during the first portion of the hike and not to forget the constant presence of mosquitoes, this was actually a very nice hike with a slightly rewarding summit. Would only recommend to the motivated hiker who is ready to give up their mental sanity. (nice waterfalls but if you stop get ready to lose a pint of blood)

Très belle randonnée majoritairement en foret. Les points de vue ne sont pas très dégagés. Il faut parfoit s'armer de courage pour approcher les points de vue. En revanche le passage proche des lacs y donne un accès direct. Il s'agit d'un sentier qui est relativement peu fréquenté, et pour cause il est difficile et relativement long. Il faut faire 13km de route dans le parc pour accéder au parking. Le sentier est bien renseigné, il ne laisse aucune place au doute une fois le chemin commencé ! Gilles Barjon
