This park is absolutely beautiful with it's breathtaking views. The lookout points are well placed for maximum scenic photos to be taken. Take the drive and stop along the way at all the places you can. Plan for a few hours - this is not something you should rush.

We spent the morning snow shoeing here this past weekend. The trails were clearly marked and the staff were very helpful. We will definitely return for future snowshoeing.

I go to Gatineau Park several times a year. My favourite place to visit in the area, especially in the Fall.
