Awesome trail for the family and handicapped accessible even. Well groomed and wide trail. Highly recommend it for a family outing or an easy trail through the forest. When I went though there was a bears in the area sign but I didn’t see any.

Nice trail for a leisurely hike. Easy to access, lots of parking and there are a few great restaurants and pubs close by to enjoy after the hike. The trail is fairly flat and the loop is easy to follow. There is also lots of great foliage and wildlife, which keeps the trail interesting.

I agree with the other reviews - pretty simple trail, usually lots of visitors, etc. But it is easy to get to and nice for a Sunday afternoon walk in nature. And right next to it is the little village of Old Chelsea which has a pub, some restaurants with outdoor patios, a new ice cream parlour and a bakery with excellent local bread (if any is left when you get there).

Very leisurely stroll through some fairly nice woods. Definitely not a hike, and not many viewpoints or points of interest. But would be good for wheelchairs or strollers etc.

The sugarbush trail is a heavily used trail near Chelsea, Quebec.

It's great for young kids in all seasons. In the winter it is one of the only winter walking trails in Gatineau park (most of the other trails are restricted to cross country skiing in the winter). In the spring it blooms with thousands of trilliums. There is a cute little river where you can take some nice photos.

The main downside of this trail (hence the 3-star rating) is that it is a bit too popular for my liking.
