Hiking - Waterfall Trail - Gatineau Park

by Shane Séguin

The Waterfall trail is located along the Gatineau Parkway. While not the longest hike in Gatineau Park, it certainly has its own charm. Featuring the Bridal Veil falls (named by former Prime Minister Mackenzie King) which culminate this experience, it is another must-see destination in Gatineau Park. The trail is about 1.5km in length (to the falls and returning), mainly flat, with only the approach and descent to the falls offering any additional challenge. The trail leaves the parking and…

@Shane Séguin­ you definitely picked a fantastic day to be there. I was there that day as well but only for the last hour due to work. Still a few more weekends to go, and they've extended the closing date!

They make extra snow later in the season for 70 Ouest, and sometimes Nordique. 70 Ouest is the first to open and the last to close each year. They have permanent snowguns all along the trail from top to bottom and spaced as tightly as they are allowe...
