Lusk Cave is a superb example of an undeveloped marble cave which is suitable for tourists. It is part of the Gatineau Park near Philippe Lake, about 50km north of Ottawa-Hull. Well marked trails lead to this popular cave. Starting from Parent Beach, the 10-kilometre (return) route along easy trails is dotted with interpretation panels. Walking time is approximately four hours. The tourist brochure describes Lusk Cave as an exciting natural phenomena to explore. However, visitors are recommended to bring a flash light and a second pair of shoes as the water is about a metre deep at one point!
