A beautiful area with breath taking views! There’s plenty of different hiking trails that you can choose from AND it’s family friendly. The grounds are well kept and the staff at the help desk were extremely helpful with giving us information and directions during our first trek!

Between the Ottawa and Gatineau Rivers, Gatineau Park is one of Ottawa’s largest parks knows for its perfect natural landscapes. The park is also a popular spot for recreational activities as it offers a wide range hiking trails, camping sites, cycling paths and kayaking. In the winter months, you can ski and snowboard in the park. You can also have access and visit many historic buildings and official residences. The Mackenzie King Estate is one of my favorite to go to!

This is one of my favorite places to go. It has breathtaking sights and long trails to explore. The nature here is beautiful, lots of little mammals and birds to see. A good spot to take nature photography. I suggest going in fall. The colors of the trees are vibrant. Plus the cold breeze in autumn makes hiking more enjoyable. Have fun everybody (:

Gatineau Park has hundreds of kilometers of great hiking trails, from well-groomed easy trails to challenging hill hikes. Fantastic vistas of the Ottawa Valley! 5 minutes up the road from the Lazy Cabin is an official trailhead with parking, swimming hole, and a picturesque old-fashioned covered bridge.
