Gatineau Park Snowshoeing Trail #71 Saturday PM Jan 21st

Conditions were very good, nice layer of powder over a good base.

Slight crusty layer was more noticeable in the southern portion of the loop (towards P15), almost non-existent in the northern portion (towards Carman lake).

This trail offers great viewpoints of a rolling valley and some nice challenging climbs in the forest.

We stopped a few minutes to warm up by the fire pit before heading back to P15.

Total time: 3 hours.

Gatineau Park Trail #60 & 61 Friday Jan 13th

Conditions were as good as they have been this year, thanks to a fresh dump of snow on Thursday/Friday. Snow was slightly humid, with a very thin crust half-way down from the light freezing rain.

Gatineau Park Snowshoeing Trails #60 & 61 Friday January 6th

Trail conditions were good to very good this evening. Still early in the season, very few bare rocks left on the trail, plenty of fluffy powder off the beaten path.
