  • This was a wonderful find for people who want to combine a nice walk with a bit of adventure. You can go through the cave end to end but require a flashlight, bathing suit and water shoes. It was easy...  read more »
  • In the Gatineau Park, we chose to hike from the Parent track which begins with the crossing of the campsite near Philippe Lake. It is long and not very interesting, but the true path runs along the beautiful Lake which ends with another small beach. The trail continues and climbs up to the beautiful cave that has 4 points of observations have a. We didn't know she was a few metres and with water shoes, a small lamp and a swimsuit, we could have as many present families, i.e. even the Creek that carves her explore. Experience seems to be worth with little equipment eventually.

  • This is the same cave where Justin Trudeau was spotted shirtless! Was worth the while. Started from Parent Beach and walked 5km to the cave. Make sure to bring shoes that can get wet and a strong flashlight. There were two caverns. The first was very deep with water that went to my shoulders. The other only went up the my knees and it was quite long. Overall a unique and rewarding experience. Thanks Justin!
  • Walked all the way from the entrance to Lac Phillipe as roads were closed for season. Weather was great so not a problem. Certainly worth the effort as it was very quiet. Probably saw no more than dozen people. Would recommend biking the main part. Bring food and water.
  • Have done this trail twice. I recommend biking the large first part of it. Most of the trail is double wide crushed gravel, with hills. It is only the last kilometre that must be done on foot. Bring headlamps for the cave!
  • Perfect place to go for a day getaway in nature! Beautiful hike and the caves are so much fun to go through!
  • It's so wonderful and you can enjoy it. You need head lump!
