Gatineau Park Trail Running (Marathon Distance) - Chelsea P8 to/from Luskville Fire Tower, Quebec

UPDATED 2011-22-23:

On Nov 15, 2011, I did a 44 km hike/run in the Gatineau Park in Quebec. Here is a description of the route:

From Chelsea parking lot P8, up Gatineau Parkway for abt 1.5 km, right onto Trail #1 (Ridge Road), pass Keogan cabin, cross Fortune Parkway, continue on Trail #1, pass Shilly Shally Shack, pass Huron cabin, turn right at Champlain Lookout intersection, continue on Trail #1 going west, pass Trail #9/Western cabin, continue till McKinstry cabin, then finally the Luskville Fire Tower; Return. The route as described might be less than 42.2 km, but if you take side trips along the way (e.g. Champlain Lookout, Western Cabin, etc.), you can make it a marathon distance trip.

Below are the satellite route map + photos I took along the way.

Earlier this week, I took advantage of the warmer-than-usual weather and did a 44 km run/walk in the Gatineau Park.

I started from the Chelsea parking lot P8, walked up the Gatineau Parkway, and turned right onto Trail #1. From then on, I ran/walked my way up to Champlain Lookout and continued on to the Luskville Fire Tower.

The mostly uphill route from Meech Lake P8 to Luskville is 22 km one-way. The return trip is 44 km, slightly longer than a full-marathon.

I will post some of the photos l took along the way when I have a chance.
