Welcome to Gault Nature Reserve of Mont-Saint-Hilaire, one of the last remaining intact old-growth forests in southern Que- bec. This nature reserve is the property of McGill University since 1958. The mountain offers visitors a 25 km trail network leading over four summits with magnificent panoramic views. Since 1972, McGill University has entrusted a non-profit or- ganisation, the Mont Saint-Hilaire Nature Centre, to provide services to thousands of yearly visitors. In partnership with McGill University and the support of its 5000 members, the Nature Centre actively protects this natural heritage and also the surrounding region. In 1978, considering the unique natural wealth of the moun- tain, UNESCO designated Mont Saint-Hilaire the first Bio- sphere Reserve in Canada with the wish that it would inspire, in the whole region, the harmony between all human activities and nature. With this in mind, the Nature Centre works with the local municipalities and organisations to promote the con- servation and restoration of the regional wooded areas and good practices in durable development.
I loved the view. Definetely worth it
Loved this trail! I actually did two as a "loop", went up Burned Hill and came down Le Pain De Sucre. It is quite tough though if you are a begginer or overweight.
Easy access from Montreal. It is a very beautiful natural reserve. We go to hike there whenever we have time in the week-ends
You can do all the trails in 3-4h. The trails are all fairly easy, but it's still a fun hike just outside the city.
Easy family climb
belle randonnée. les sentier sont très bien balisé et entretenu.
Superbe montagne. Il est juste dommage que les chiens y sont interdits. en monteregie, aucun mont n'accepte les chiens, on doit se déplacer a Bromont ou Sutton pour beneficier d'activités de plein air avec notre poilu à 4 pattes.
Parfaite pour tous et très accessible
lovely little hike.
