The Luskville Falls Trail has a 290-metre climb up the rocky slope of the Eardley Escarpment. At the top you have a superb view of the Ottawa River Valley. Along the way, learn about plants and trees on the escarpment, the most spectacular ecosystem in Gatineau Park. Dogs and pets are not permitted on the Luskville Falls Trail.

I like hiking on this trail for elevation gained similar to many high peaks in ADK NY. It’s good for preparing before heading to high peaks.

Would probably be better in the spring when the water levels are higher and the falls are heavier! Still, a nice short hike, not far from Gatineau. Quick climb, scenic views!

Gorgeous trail in the fall. Was quite busy on a Sunday, Oct 22nd.

Found it quite challenging with a baby carrier, but thoroughly enjoyed it!

Very rocky and steep!

Challenging hike with lots of steep and rocky places along the trail. Numerous spots along the way for great photos of the creek and falls. Beautiful view of the valley from the top. Very buggy so bring nets, bug spray or do as I did and just keep moving! * Please Note: Currently there is no informational signage about the surrounding area as the NCC has removed them all.

Very intense for novice hikers, but the river can be used to cool off , views are fantastic and trail never gets boring.

We dressed in long sleeves and hiking pants and sprayed for mosquitos, black flies etc. And we saw few! Most of the trail was marked fairly well. We had 4 instances on the return back where we were off path, met other people looking too, but in a short period found our way again. The terrain initially and at the end requires you to watch your steps very closely. You don't want to fall onto jutting rocks or exposed roots! Take your time for sure. I will come back in a different season, it's great outdoor exercise!

Best in the area! Your legs take a pounding on the way down but worth it for the views.

An enjoyable hike, with a couple of nice lookouts, that we accomplished in about 2.5hrs including time for photographs and a snack. The blackflies were bad, especially near the fire tower.

First km straight up the escarpment then relatively flat from there. About 5 km from parking lot to an SOS cabin complete with picnic tables, wood stove and outdoor facilities. Cabin was down a gravel road past the fire lookout tower. Good hike - but black flies were insane so dress appropriately. Some trails closed due to seasonal floods.

Loved this hike! More of a challenge than I expected. Can't wait to go back :)

Great trail close to the city. Good training for bigger climbs. Nice views on the way up. Fire tower at the top. Good mix of terrain. Great for trail running. Moderate difficulty.

Really enjoyed the hike. I was looking for something that was a bit more challenging than Pink Lake or King Mountain - this def was it. Good workout.
