Details of New Snowshoe Trails in Gatineau Park

Based on discussions with Gatineau Park representatives, here are details of the new snowshoe trails shown on this year's 2009-10 Winter Trail map (now available):

Lac Phillippe
  • New trail #74 begins at P19, crosses trail #51 and reaches Renaud sheleter at Lac Renaud. It then forks back to the Phillipe and Des Pins cabins, crosses trail #50 to connect to existing trail #73 at the Breton pay phone.
Lacs Brown-Carman-des Sources
  • Trail #71 now extends past the rest area and reaches Lac Carman before looping back to P15. The portion from the rest area to Lac Carman already existed but was no longer operational until being re-opened for this year. The portion back to P15 is new. A short (~500m) interconnection now links trail #71 with existing trail #72

MacKenzie King

  • Trail #63 is a short (~1km) loop between P6 and the Champlain parkway.

If I've missed any other changes to the snowshoe trails, please let me know.
