beaux sentiers , plusieurs choix.


the view when you get to the lake is SOOO worth it.

we arrived with our dogs and the lady at the front desk said it was okay to bring them with us, just make sure to pick up the poo :)

Très belle vue. Sentier assez facile jusqu'à l'arrivée vers la boucle du sommet.
Nous sommes allés un lundi, croisé personne et nos chiens ont pu être lousse. Assez boueux, il y avait une couche de neige sur le top!

I loved it, 6 hrs hiking from Sutton Chalet (Maple av) foggy, muddy but worthy for the great points of view!! I’ve been there twice and be back for sure!!!

Un trésor peu connu!

It was a great challenge for hikers. There are parts that are very steep which take longer than usual. I camped at around the 21km. It is hard, even impossible, to find a spot for a tent after that. It is better to wear boots if you have a full backpack because it is very muddy, steep, and rough road.

Slightly technical hike with great lookouts.

Quel expérience!!

Un bijou caché ! Nous avons fait le sentier des Monts du Lac à l’Empêche et du Four dans le cadre du défi des 5 sommets...superbe sentier! Un de nos coups de coeur ! Beaucoup de single track et un segment d’ascension au début ! Se court facilement! À refaire!

amazing hike. Start early to have enough time to enjoy the scenery. I started mid day, I had to rush back down to make daylight.

Beautiful hike!!!! Make sure you are prepared for various terrain (i.e. hiking boots are strongly recommended) and give yourself lots of time (i.e. start early in the day).

Je suis allee samedi le 18 août. Une très belle piste pour le hiking en nature (jai monte la piste le « double alfred » sur la carte du mont pour skier), mais assez difficile pour un debutant par contre

Done in 2016. Amazing experience, the shift in landscape and the agitated weather right before reaching the summit made it an unforgettable hike!

Très beau sentier avec des points de vue impressionnant. Un joyaux caché.

A good challenging hike, we did it in two days with full ruck sacks for overnight. the trail is a hybrid of their and back with a loop and your actually doing "Le Toit-des-Laurentides" then a loop of "Johansen". very steep in sections and was quite muddy in parts but very few people on trail. I'd say without packs you could maybe do the full loop in 10hrs

Amazing hike!

Fun trail while in the lush forest. Nice climb for a few hundred vertical feet. Too much of running on the road counted as trail, but wide river along side is a plus. Beautiful serene area.

Le personnel à l’accueil est sympathique. Beau sentier en général. La portion entre le Round Top et le Lac Mohawk est parfois étroite. Ce trajet demeure bien balisé à la grandeur de ce que j’ai vu.

This trail is amazing! Took me 6 hours in that constant light rain! Wet leaves and branches were flooding my feet and shorts but it was worth it! I started with the Expert trail and took the sentier des chutes trail that goes all around from Gros mont to the parking!

I camped at the parking lot before going the day after! You can camp up there but for me 25km was something doable in a day and i had no point of view due to the mist all around the whole day (i have a curse in the past few days)! I have met the guy who dis all the trails!

He’s called Geatan and he was an amazing fellow! Tha k tou so much to have build that isolated circuit of trails in one the moat beautiful region of Quebec!

A bit difficult!

Did the loop clockwise and it’s a decent hike. The beginning and end are along well groomed trails. Trail 9 is fun and muddy in spots right now. Bug spray is a good idea right now!

It was a good difficult one!

This is a nice long trail that goes across the park. At the far east end (midway) of the trail there is a river going down a small canyon. I had lunch by the river and got back in the afternoon. On my way back I came across a small group of hare that were pretty bold as they did not try to run away from me.

Je l’ai fait en hiver c’est merveilleux. Ils offrent un service de transport de refuge en refuge si on veut faire plusieurs dodo sans avoir trop de charge. Je le recommande ! Merci de cette belle aventure.

Probably a good one to do, but when we arrived they told us it’s close for all summer !

Done in summer 2016.

Incredible hike! Very long hike and hard on the knees in the descent, but very rewarding!
