Excellent hike this time of year to see the colours. The trail was a bit muddy in a few spots but nothing serious. Counterclockwise loop is best if you prefer to hike UP the steep parts rather than DOWN. I recommend you get there very early because when I finished around 1100, the parking lot was full with cars waiting.

Good walk for the area. Anticlockwise loop best as signed - that way you do the hardest part first

1st half is steep, irregular. Perfect. Nice views, lovely creek. Sunny August day, so no bugs.

Great workout for a novice hiker. Lots of variation of terrain and scenery. A fun mother- daughter outing!

Thoroughly enjoyed this trail. Great look outs and much of it was shaded which was nice in the heat. Lots of friendly people too.

This is our family's regular go-to trail. Couple hours, really good uphill and nice fast way down. Great in all seasons, including on snowshoes after a good snowfall.
For the à Ottawa region, can't beat the wolf trail / Blanchet from P13!

The trail covers pretty much all I would like to test on the hiking boots. Very nice.

We enjoyed this hike and it provided a great workout. It was steep in spots, and rocky, but offered two lovely lookout areas that were well worth the climb. Pleasantly surprised with this trail. Hardly any bugs (August).

I’ve done this trail twice now and I really enjoy it. When I hiked it at the end of June the bugs were quite bad. However, this time we didn’t experience any bugs. Today we hiked in the pouring rain, the rocks were a little slippery in spots, and it was a bit muddy. A great trail nonetheless.

I love this trail. It is a great workout, but not a difficult one. Beautiful views are a treat along the way!

It’s unbelievable how much bugs there was over there, no surprise the trail goes around a swomp. Unless you bring a ton of bugs spray, avoid this trail. Note that we did this trail today (may 21st). There is also a lot of mud ( as the trail is around a swomp). The scenery are not so impressive. Good trail for workout but doesn’t worth the mud and bugs.

Trail is a little muddy in spots and there are lots of rocks so it could be slippery. Bugs were out May long weekend and we were glad to have bug spray. This is a great Trail for amateur hikers looking for more of a challenge and workout. Took us 3 hours. Great views and Trail is well marked for most part.

Don't need snowshoes this time of year. Winter hiking boots are adequate. When starting from P13, after about 15 minutes there'll be a fork in the trail. Take Mahinga trail which will eventually ascend. The trail path follows close to the edge, allowing for some wonderful vistas along your route.

Excellent and challenging trail for year round hiking or snowshoeing in the winter.

I love this Trail (in every season!!) Two amazing lookouts (and very different), the sounds of small streams running through a beautiful forest... with a variety of levels of difficult throughout the Trail. It’s about 8.5km total, I think. I recommend turning RIGHT at the fork (near the beginning of the Trail head), to aim towards Mahingan Lookout first. It’s a steep uphill climb for 2km from there. Then a shorter easier 2k walk to the next Lookout, and then a gradual and longer 3.5km walk back to the Trailhead. I also recommend going for both summer hiking and winter hiking(or snowshoeing in my case) to see how awesome but different the landscape is!

One of the best trails in Gatineau park. Great views along the Ottawa valley at the half-way point really add to an already enjoyable walk through the forest. Crosses a few streams and can therefore be wet at times - be prepared!

Beatiful trail with unseasonably warm weather. At the end was able to cool off in Meech Lake.
