Just walked the first part of the trail from p17 (trail 53) - about 3.5 km in and then back - with my 7 year old. As I only did part of the route perhaps my 3-star rating is a bit low (I never got to Lac Philippe) Was mostly pleasant forest with gentle up-hills. The trail was quite wide and is under repair due to recent flooding. A decent amount of mountain bikers but they were always respectful.

A very nice 20k trail run. About half is quite technical.Steep hills on the first half, easier on the 2nd half. Nice views of Lac Philippe from the less used east side of the lake. Close to Wakefield, lots of nice cafes for after the run!
