I never knew this trail existed - probably because it appears to be a winter/snowshoe trail and I don't showshoe that often. My family went for a hike in May and the snowshoe trails for sign 60 were still up and they made for a nice 40 minute loop. This trail is hilly and rocky but quite pretty. Lots of trilliums in May and best of all none of the crowds of the sugar bush. You have to cross the highway to get here (assuming you park at the Gatineau Park visitor centre) but after that you're in the clear. Only caution: there is a 10 minute stretch at the bottom that was quite water logged so bring boots in the spring. I'm not sure if the trail is open in the summer (my guess is no as it doesn't appear on the summer map of Gatineau Park) but it may open earlier in the winter so could be a cool place for a pre-snow walk before the trail becomes snowshoe-only.
