Plan a number of hikes here but the best are hikes into 1) Pink Lake 2) Mackenzie King Estate 3) Kings Mountain more »
We did a guided snowshoeing excursion with a naturalist. She was very knowledgeable. We learned about trees, animals and their tracks. The trail was just long enough. It was very enjoyable and it was free! I highly recommend.
Gatineau Park is huge - I want to share one aspect of it I think they have killed. Near the Parkway there is a great tube slide for the family that should be checked out. They have tubes to slide and a tow rope to get you back to the top of the hill. The kids just loved it and we think anybody with kids will love this too.
