Great view of the Ottawa valley and river. It overlooks the Eardley escarpment with historical information about the area and how it was developed over the years. A definite place to visit in the Park.

We walked the Champlain Lookout loop (20 minutes), as well as the Pink Lake loop (60 minutes, including time to take photos and read the panels). They were both very enjoyable walks, and we learned a lot about the area too, thanks to the numerous informational panels. The views of the lowlands were nice. I can only imagine how glorious...

We encountered few cars and bicycles on the parkway during a weekday afternoon drive to Gatineau Park. My family, including a four-year-old, stopped for a picnic and spent a couple hours walking on the Pinks Lake trail. The sun was shining and the water calm - the view was beautiful. It was very pleasant and peaceful. The Park is truly... More

We had a wonderful afternoon hiking in Gatineau Park. We did the Luskville Falls trail but didn't have time to go in the cave. We did the sugarbush trail a few times and another one that was very hilly. I could spend a week here!

While visiting Ottawa for a few days in June, we completed a short morning hike in Gatineau Park to get out of the city. We were pleased to find such a decent hike within a reasonable driving distance (it took us about 35 minutes from the Parliament Hill area) and were glad that our trail -- the Luskville Falls Trail...

The Gatineau Park is just 20 minutes north of Ottawa. Start off with a hike around Pink Lake. Stop for a meal, ice cream, the Farmers Market (Saturdays) and shop at Delilah in the Park. Go mountain biking along the trails, or cycle along the paved highway. Explore the McKenzie King Estate, with Greek columns scattered along the beautiful the... More

I love spending my time at Gatineau Park. There are a wide range of trails for different activity levels. Luskville falls, wolf trail, pink lake are all beautiful trails. Easy parking options (careful when you are choosing a trail near one of their beaches then there is a fee for parking in the summer months). Prefer the less popular trails,... More

My wife and I came back to Ottawa to visit some family. She's from China and so I wanted to show her Canada's beautiful natural scenery. We spent a full day exploring the park. Lac la Peche is definitely a highlight. Unfortunately canoe rentals weren't available that day, but some friendly locals let us use their canoe for an hour.... More
