A spectacular park, part of the Canadian Shield, and only a 15 minute drive from downtown Ottawa! We were about a week too late to see the vivid red fall colours but there were still many areas with gorgeous yellow and orange foliage. My friend...More

Lots of areas where to park your vehicle and start walking the trails. Trails are weel tendered and go from an easy stroll to a hard work up. You choose.

You simply can't deny it's beauty. The king mountain and the pink lake. After a moderate hike through the trails comes the view point. The sight is simply worth the efforts.

Drove through Gatineau to see the autumn leaves. It was so pretty. Leave yourself enough time, it's a very large park. We stopped at Mckenzie King's cottage, but ran out of time to see the main house.

Its a large park with lakes and lookouts (Champlain lookout is at the end of a 12 km road - single lane each way with very slow drivers - if you are in a hurry, reconsider).

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... 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... More
