Gatineau Park is huge. It will take around 45 minutes to drive through the whole area. Good spots to visit are Mackenzie-King Estate, Kingsmere (coffee house not open on Tuesdays), Champlain Lookout, and Camp Fortune.

We went for hiking, and to see 2 waterfalls: Luskville Falls and Bridal Veil Falls. Both were very picturesque, especially after the heavy rainfall. Both are photogenic; we saw them both during mornings
