Walk under a canopy of colourful leaves to a blue lake. 🍂
One of the most spectacular spots to see the colourful foliage is only a few minutes away from Ottawa.
So put on your flannel as the Pink Lake trail in Gatineau Park will lead you through a breathtaking fall paradise.
Starting from the Pink Lake parking lot, you can follow the short 2.3-kilometre loop path for non-stop views of the glistening lake.
From start to finish, it will take you around an hour and will provide a good leg workout as you'll need to climb several sets of stairs.
But it is worth every step as you'll be surrounded by a canopy of red, yellow and orange leaves while you enjoy the lookout over the bright teal water.
Address: Gatineau Pkwy., Gatineau, QC
Why You Need To Go: While in the area, you can also head to the Pink Lake Lookout, which offers an incredible view over the water and surrounding forest.
In Quebec, a vaccine passport is required to access many businesses and activities deemed non-essential, including restaurants and bars.
