Winter Hiking in Gatineau Park
Explore Gatineau Park via one of its winter hiking trails and experience the peacefulness of the winter forest.
Most Gatineau Park trails are dedicated to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter. There are, however, four trails (about 10 kilometres) available for winter hiking. These trails are mechanically groomed once a week, usually on Friday.
