Western Shelter Professional Review and Guide
"The various Shelters in Gatineau Park are among its most popular features, all seasons of the year. With their wood stoves and picnic tables, they provide a defined destination and a cosy refuge in inclement weather. Of these, Western Shelter offers the most scenic view, and because of its proximity to Champlain Lookout, it is also one of the busiest. The route I have selected requires a challenging climb from Lac Meech and returns via several little-visited interior hiking paths."
