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

Beautiful lookouts.

Challenging trail at times. Can be really muddy in the spring. Views are fantastic.

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!
