A great hike and workout!

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!

I recently discovered a passion for hiking and this trail is only a few minutes from my house. Have been there 5 times in the last 3 weeks. In winter at least, the trail is 10.12 km long to the tain tracks (pont de fer). People walk and snowshoe there. Trail crampons are highly recommended. Poles are not necessary. People DO walk their dogs off leash so please keep this in mind if you are afraid of dogs. Beautiful scenery.
The parking is up the hill from the dam on the Notre-Dame-du-Mont-Carmel side. Have fun.

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.


Hiked the Johansen trail on March 8th 2018 with snow shoes. The trail seems to be passed over with a snowmobile once in a while. While physical demanding, it's a very rewarding hike. Very little human contact. Returned via Les sommets and the whole hike (Johansen + Les Sommets) took about 5 hrs (including a 30 min stop at Pic Johansen).

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

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

cross country skiing

We did a small portion of the 15 km of trails at the Skipontiac site. The trails were pretty flat and perfect for my 7 year old daughter's first time cross-country skiing. The Pine lodge at the site is nice for hot chocolate or lunch after you ski.

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...

Such a great snowshoe hike! The scenery is amazing, and what about the views!
The beginning is hard but you won't regret!
I choose to stay the night in the hut La Voie Lactée on the top of Mount Megantic and I recommand the experience!
It took me 5 hours to get to the hut and then 2 to ger back to the car!

Description not acurate! This is a loop, a great one to avoid the crowd on the Round Top!
The winter scenery is at its best after a snowstorm!

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..

Parfait! court, pas trop loin.... le seul petit bémol
c'est qu'il y a beaucoup trop de monde!

MA montagne!!! ha ha! Je l'adore! Le dernier bout est dure! Surtout en raquettes quand tu tape la trail! a refaire!

Very nice in winter

Superbement calme au sud-ouest de Montréal

Amazing challenging trail. Beautiful scenery.
