Lake Pink trail

 

During our family getaway to Ottawa (post

here

) we rented a flat with Airbnb in Gatineau and we stayed about 0,5 miles from the

Gatineau Park

, which is 36,131 hectares wide, and we were at 15 minutes drive away from the

Pink Lake trail

.

This park really is amazing and huge, there are so many hiking and riding trails as well as many lakes with several activities you can choose from : beach, canoe, fishing, camping…etc

We decided to go to the Lake Pink trail, well-known for it wonderful green color; we were truly surrounded by beautiful lanscapes.

 

 


THE LAKE PINK TRAIL

We went hiking on the Lake Pink trail, with its 1.6 miles (about 60 minutes walking); it took us around 1 hour ½  with the kids as we took our time and made several stops. In case you wonder, this is not accessible with a stroller because of the many stairs and paths.

During this stroll, we found ourselves contemplating the lake from different views; the many shades of green were just incredible. Although the lake is beautiful and the water color is very tempting; swimming in the lake is forbidden, to preserve it.

 

 

On the way, we came across this adorable chipmunk 🙂 :




Useful information: Parking to this trail is free, however, some other parkings are not.

 


LAKE PINK’S PANORAMIC VIEWPOINT

For those that don’t want to go on the trail, there is also a panoramic viewpoint, accessible with cars, with parking spaces. It will allow you to admire the lac from the top and to take pictures.



 

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, I will let you discover our journey through these photos.
