This is a very easy hike that most people can do in about an hour. It's a wonderful family hike. Get there early as it fills up fast and there is no parking.

Not much of a challenge but very scenic. It is quite busy with families, children, and tourists stopping to take pictures and can be muddy after rain.

I biked up to this trail from downtown Ottawa but forgot to bring a lock forcing me to carry the bike around the lake. This was not a problem as the trail and stairways are wide enough to do this while still being able to pass others. Beautiful views and plenty of information and signage.

Great trail for a beginner like me! Lots of stairs but the view alone is worth it!

wow, je l'ai fait en automne mais doit y retourner en été car l'eau doit être plus clair encore mais tranquille comme endroit reconnecte avec la nature

Great short trail if you're looking for something casual and leisurely. Not long and not difficult, great for when you have a group of people because everyone can keep up and enjoy the view.

Pink lake is very pretty on a sunny day - its an unearthly green. The lake feels like a little oasis that's very close to the city of Ottawa.

The main problem with this trail is that its very popular. Don't even think about coming on a Saturday or Sunday around Thanksgiving!

However, if you do catch the trail when its less busy, its a nice walk. The Mica mines along the route are an interesting quirk.

Warning: there are lots of stairs on this trail!
