Wolf Trail is a moderate hike featuring many open rock viewing areas of the Gatineau Hills and the Ottawa River Valley. Moderate hike with many large rocks.

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.

Moderate in the summer, difficult in the winter (snowshoeing), but AMAZING all year round! I recommend turning RIGHT at the fork when starting the trail. This way brings you steeply straight up the mountain for a few kms, stopping at the awesome Mahingan Lookout first. Then a couple kms further brings you to the Tawadina Lookout, which has got to be one of the most stunning views of Gatineau Park! Then it's easy going mostly downhill for the last few kms, with nice streams alongside/crossing the path. Great trail

This was a fun and challenging hike. The north part of the loop is the most difficult but the views are lovely. If you are just looking for the one lookout point, stick to the south loop. There is even a section of hard gravel easy for walking on!

Great for trail running! Bring your bathing suit - you can always take a dip into Meech Lake after your run. Park at P13 in Gatineau Park. Enjoy!

Nice view at one of the lookouts, more beginner/intermediate.

Fabulous hike: just hard enough to be challenging, but it's not overwhelming: three lookouts: great views. Hiking poles can come in handy : especially after a rainfall when the trail and rocks can be slippery. Trail marked well for the most part: but some areas need a few more flashes

Challenging but well worth the views. Very often it is quite muddy so wear good shoes.

My favorite trail in the park. And intersects with a bunch of other if you feel like extending your hike.
