Gatineau Park trails in spring

Gatineau Park trails in spring

(Theme 4 – Habitat, Theme 6 – Natural Capital, Theme 8 – Health, Theme10 – Sense of Place)

Organization: National Capital Commission (NCC)

Timeline for Completion: Ongoing


Spring has arrived in Gatineau Park. Snow is melting, nature is waking up — and people are too! Many of you want to get out and enjoy the spring air. But be careful: the Park’s plants and wildlife are fragile during the spring thaw.

Here is what you need to know to prepare for an outing in Gatineau Park this spring.
In order for the trails to dry out for the summer season, people need to stay on the recommended hiking trails listed below. Skiers may continue to access the network, but conditions are highly variable, and routes are no longer officially recommended. We will gradually announce other trails as they open for hiking this spring.
Recommended trails: Sugarbush Trail, Lauriault Trail, Pioneers Trail, and Capital Pathway.
