Ascent Trip Report

A nice short but steep hike up the side of the Eardley Escarpment with several open outlooks over the Ottawa Valley. The summit is one of the higher points (but not the highest) in Gatineau Park. The tower is closed to access and is looking pretty decrepit. The summit is a nice open area with jack pine and oak forest.
