Gatineau Yurts

Gatineau Yurts

Mike & Amanda, Tyner & Cynthia.

Amanda pre-booked the Lac Richard Yurt. No idea the cost. Drove 5 to 105 to 366 to Chemin du Lac Phillippe. Parked at P19 (no payment required). I had to leave work late, so the others (Amanda, Tyner Cynthia) were already en-route. Started hiking ~5pm with advertised sunset at 7:30pm. The 13km route past Lac Renaud, Lac Taylor and on to Lac Richard, is well marked with sign posts, but the paper maps available from the park omit many paths and roads. I was convinced I would be stranded alone in the dark but eventually caught up with them and we arrived at the Yurt well past 7:30 just as the light was totally failing. Note: the last two kilometers is all up hill. The Yurt is very luxerious. We had a great time.
