Trail #74 Gatineau Park

Following yesterday's outing on Wolf Trail, headed up to the Lac Philippe sector expecting to find more snow than the Meech Lake sector. As it turns out, that wasn't quite the case but conditions were nonetheless good.

Starting at parking lot 19 (P19), it's a bit more than 3km to reach the Renaud shelter. Once near the Renaud shelter, the Philippe and Pines shelters aren't far away and the Wanakiwin Yurt is just a bit farther.

The base was still thin along many sections of the trail, with branches and leaves piercing through the snow.

A warm fire was already burning in the stove at the Renaud shelter when I got there.

Here's a left and right view of the small Renaud lake.

Next to the lake is a group camp site (GR4) with a very nice "lean-to" style shelter.
