Gatineau Park

There is a reason this park makes most lists – the views are spectacular. With trails for hikers and bikers alike, there is something for everyone. The Pink Lake trail is a great trail for all levels of hikers and is a beautiful spot to sit and relax. Despite its name, this lake is actually a stunning shade of green.

Dominion Arboretum

 

The Arboretum is home to over 2,000 different varieties of shrubs and trees, making it a must see for stunning fall colours. You can catch the beautiful views by land or by water. Rent a canoe or kayak from Dow’s Lake Pavilion for a peaceful afternoon while you take in the scenery.

Rock Dunder Nature Reserve

About an hour and a half outside of Ottawa, this reserve has several trails to walk which include serene lake views, a gorgeous lookout, and a quaint cabin trail.

Calabogie: Manitou Mountain

Eagle’s Nest Lookout is a truly stunning sight. Located in the trails of Calabogie, you can access this lookout from a shorter trail if you aren’t in the mood for a long hike. At the end of the day you can head over to the brewery for a well-deserved refresher.
