La Monter is difficult enough for a correct point of view

Great hike. It’s rare to have a trail that offers so many unique views on the ascent. Every ten minutes we had another view, like a Russian doll that keeps giving you more and more and more. Driving to the beginning of the trail is like driving the Amalfi Coast, but up all the way. The trail is very well defined. It is fairly steep all the way up. About 80% in you have to walk over a lot of wet and smooth rocks as the trail become thinner. I had to use my hands and butt a few times. We start our ascent around 6am to beat the heat. As we climbed down the sun was finally on our backs. It took us 3:40 including breakfast at the end of the yellow trail. I loved this hike.

We hit the trail at 9:30 and it was an immediate steep incline, not letting up for a good 30 minutes. It is a consistently steep (but gorgeous) hike! I was expecting King Kong’s face to emerge from the clouds - it was a set-of-a-movie beautiful. The rain was intermittent but never enough to make it too muddy until we got up into the clouds. Then it became incredibly windy and more wet and humid. There is an old abandoned hut about 20 minutes from the top and from that point on the wind increased until it was like a hurricane- pushing us around. The rocks at the top were slippery and I cut my ankle when I slipped and my foot got wedges between rocks. We felt like we were in danger for a few minutes when the wind was blowing us around at the top (and we couldn’t see any of the drop offs because of the clouds. We were a good 20 feet from what seemed like a drop off though, and we were fine. Such a great adventure! This hike is for reasonably fit people. Reasonably fit people who aren’t adventurous won’t like this hike, as there is scrambling required in the top section. I went with a 9 year old and an 11 year old, and they (and I) had an AWESOME time!

more of a walk than a hike but stunning views. almost completely shaded, lush, and a charming restaurant at the end in the rainforest. (closed mondays) approx 10 miles round trip if you start from Le Carbet waterfront but could rent a car to the trail head. Was totally open and well travelled.

Us Canadians aren't used to some sheer dropoffs in public recreation areas, as is the case with parts of this trail. However, the vistas are spectacular, and the trail is definitely worthy of a return trip. There was a downpour for a portion of our trek, which made paying attention to one's footwork even more important. The hisyory of this trail also makes it a must see.
