Looking for a gorgeous place to visit this fall, get fresh air and discover the beauty this season has to offer. Head to Gatineau park for a gorgeous mind blowing experience. The leaves are changing colour and it is a magical place to visit, go...More
We visited the park a couple times during our stay in Ottawa. The park is only a 20 to 30 minute drive from the city, making it almost too accessible as we inferred from all of the parking restriction signs.

Beautiful place for a picnic, photography and meeting people from other countries. You can also cycle up the Gatineau parkway to the lookout ... it is a bit demanding going up but the ride back down is fantastic.
We stopped by Pink Lake after visiting Mackenzie King Estate. The trail around Pink lake is definitely worthwhile if you have 1-2 hours and the fitness to walk up and down 2-3 flights of stairs multiple times as you go around the lake. The lake...More
Just spent a beautiful morning hiking around Pink Lake.
It was a beautiful Sept. day and therefore very busy on the trail.
This was our first visit to Gatineau park and can’t wait to come back and experience many more trails. Possibly on bike.
Beautifull Park ! There is site for 'point of view', Places to stop and enjoyed the beauty of the nature. There is also a pink color lake that you have to see. Very next to the great city of Gatineau et Ottawa.

Sorry I didn't see this question before, TA just brought it to my attention recently. You can still visit the southern part of the park, and it's still worth going, in my opinion, but of course it depends on how much you're willing to walk. If you bring up the route 33 map, and launch the Gatineau Park interactive trail map, you can survey your options. It's easy to get to Lac des Fees, and you can walk as little or as much as you like. The Pioneers loop is also close by, if you want to see some history. If you'd like to walk more, you can get off the bus further up, and head over to Pink Lake. It's probably going to be 10-ish km to walk over to the lake, around it, and back (with some hills too), but it's pretty nice if you're up to that much walking. Of course this is just the southern tip of the park, but still worth seeing. Have fun!
It seems like there is no really good way to get right into the park by bus (except during the fall foliage season, when some special shuttles may be running). If you do a search on "STO Plani Bus", go to the STO web site... More
It seems like there is no really good way to get right into the park by bus (except during the fall foliage season, when some special shuttles may be running). If you do a search on "STO Plani Bus", go to the STO web site and look at the route schedules, you can see the bus schedules, and check them out. It seems like 27 and 35 get up near the park (you can catch them not too far from the Market area), but you'll have to walk a bit to see anything from the closest bus stops. Hope this helps!
