Great view on Ottawa Valley Jun 25, 2011
The Luskville Falls is great view and do fitness, to the very top of the escarpment where large open areas provide excellent views of the Ottawa Valley. Amazing, I recommended that best on evening that's the beautiful colors of the sky about 7-8pm. Depend time how long do walk on trail. That about 2 hours for return. I always enjoy, when i do the hiking on Luskville Falls that's pure nature with forest, rocks and water falls, so really great view.

From Ottawa, it's 40 mins distance to Luskville, Quebec.

Hope you will enjoy it!

Amazing views of the Ottawa Valley May 22, 2008
Luskville Falls Trail is a 5 km scenic hike going up the Eardley escarpment. Going up almost 300 meters, you will enjoy amazing views of the valley below. The best time to go is during the spring or early summer when the waterfall is at its peak. Later in the summer, the falls are dry. Once you have reached the top, you can stop at the Water Tower and enjoy a picnic. You can walk another 3 km to reach the McKinstry cabin in the woods where you can use the facilities and build a fire in the fireplace. Unfortunately no overnight camping is allowed in this cabin.

I like to go often during the summer with friends and family from out of town. I highly recommend wearing decent walking/hiking shoes - it's always funny to watch tourists trying to hike in high-heels! The trail is not too challenging. Plan for 2-3 hours depending on your level of fitness and whether you stop to eat. Bring your lunch and some water. Bug spray is also a good idea.

Bears and deer are sometimes seen on the trail. No bear attacks have ever been reported.- sightings are usually from a good distance as bears avoid human contact. The bears tend to appear mainly in August when the blueberries are in season. Several blueberry patches line the trail... I carry a bear bell on my belt. I recommend hiking in a group or carrying a whistle with you.

This trail is part of Gatineau Park. Maps of all the trails and camping sites in the park are available at the main park entrance. More information is found at the Canadian National Capital Commission's Website: http://www.canadascapital.gc.ca/bins/ncc_web_content_page.asp?cid=16297-16299-10170&lang=1.

Happy hiking!
