Wolf Trail (Gatineau Park): Trail Report

Wolf Trail in Gatineau Park is a fan favourite for local and tourists alike. Well, really, all of Gatineau Park is a fan fave since I’m sure every single adult in the city heads there on the weekends to hike, bike, swim, ski, snowshoe, go on first dates, etc.

Suggested Stops

Stopping at Biscotti et cie isn’t just a wise ideas for coffee lovers, it’s also incredibly insta worthy. Ya know, if such a thing makes you smile. 😉 Honestly though, there is great coffee (large dirty chai pour moi s’il vous plait) and their almond croissants are out of this world. Biscotti et cie has a gorgeous upstairs lounge (complete with Christmas tree for the season!), and the downstairs dinning area offers table service.
