Great winter trail

Belle petite montagne avec deux points de vue au sommet. En hiver, le début de la trail est difficile à trouver.

Did this trail in winter. You have to walk on the road for 5km before climbing on the trail. It give you nice views!
Did it until rhe first point of view and then go back down.
If you have some energy continue until km18 and go back from the trail on the orher side of the river!
19.5 km in 5h30! Great experience!

A MUST if you're a bird lover like me. You can get really close to thousands of northern gannets.

As for the hike itself, it is easy.

Fun hike not too crazy with a good view. Accessible in the winter too!

I had planned to snowshoe but the trail was too packed down. Instead I hiked with poles - was difficult but very pretty. Some very steep sections where I wished I had cleats.


Fun winter hike, but the hard packed snow combined with a lot of up and down was quite slippery. Cleats and/or poles advised!

Good snow at the higher elevations. The problem this year is that there is logging in the area, and the logging road has compromised the trails. You will need to ski up and down on the Lac Lezar side of the trail, while the other trail shown on this map is only snowshoe in the winter.

There is now also a tower at the top of Montagne Noir which provides incredible views of the area. In the winter you need to share the top of the Montagne with snowmobiles

Good little trail but...NO DOGS ALLOWED

Nice trail (avg time : 3-4hrs) but way too many people at the time I went.

Beautiful views, nice trail. Rated very difficult by the national park, but moderate is more realistic.

The first part before the top of Mont du Lac deq Cygnes is the best part! Views are really great! Be prepares it's windy up there...

Best place close to Montreal for snowshoeing! Take the little detour to Lake Spruce before going up to the to! Amazing views up there!
Took a bit more than 3hours for the out and back!

Parfait avec de jeune enfant! facile!

Juste dans ma court arrière! très bien ! je la fait souvent! moins une étoile parce que la vue est belle mais pas extraordinaire, beaucoup d'arbres en haut..

Was a beautiful hike, fairly easy but with freshly fallen snow it gave us a good workout. We used Trail 67 to get to the 66 loop, so ended up being about 5.5k in total. It was cool to cross over a cross-country skiing trail and watch them for a bit (impressive). It is a beautiful forest trail, however my only issue is that you’re so close to major roads that instead of hearing nature - you hear cars driving by and people talking.

bonne après-midi en raquette!

Bon hiking d'hiver en crampons

kind of nice but the noise coming from nearer cars turn off a bit

Me and my husband had a great time...its a nice trail..the view on the top is amazing....

I love this Trail (in every season!!) Two amazing lookouts (and very different), the sounds of small streams running through a beautiful forest... with a variety of levels of difficult throughout the Trail. It’s about 8.5km total, I think. I recommend turning RIGHT at the fork (near the beginning of the Trail head), to aim towards Mahingan Lookout first. It’s a steep uphill climb for 2km from there. Then a shorter easier 2k walk to the next Lookout, and then a gradual and longer 3.5km walk back to the Trailhead. I also recommend going for both summer hiking and winter hiking(or snowshoeing in my case) to see how awesome but different the landscape is!

Très bel endroit pour l’entraînement de course en sentier.

Very enjoyable route for snowshoeing. Some steep slopes that are challenging in winter but the varied terrain makes for a rewarding route that travels through different patches of forest and open field. There is also a fire pit and wood available at Lac Carman should a rest be needed.

Connects with a number of other snowshoeing trails to the north and south.
