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!

J’aime bien ce sentier , c’est près de chez moi et très intermédiaire ! Lorsque je n’ai pas le temps ou l’occasion d’aller plus loins je choisi l’éperon c’est un sentier passe partout selon moi .

Beautiful view at the top. This time of year was quite muddy in sections: proper hiking boots are necessary. It’s basically like climbing stairs for the first 1.5 hours.

Sentier agréable et de niveau modéré qui permet deux options (la boucle ou l'accès direct au sommet par une voie plus abrupte). Les points de vue sur la rivière sont magnifiques, surtout à l'automne! Il s'agit également d'un sentier où les chiens sont permis. Je recommande!

Très beau sentier qui vaut le détour. La montée est relativement facile avec environ 400m de dénivelé. La difficulté réside plutôt dans sa longueur (16km). Superbe point de vue au sommet, mais aucun autre en route. Le sentier est bien aménagé et permet d'observer des barrages de castors qui font parfois déborder les lacs sur notre route. Je recommande!

Beau sentier en nature avec deux points de vue parmi les plus beaux du parcs. Par contre, le sentier est très fréquenté et perd de son charme pour cette raison. Je recommande de plutôt faire le sentier du Scotora qui est beaucoup moins fréquenté et qui offre un point de vue plus impressionnant encore, à mon avis. Ce dernier est toutefois plus long, avec une boucle de 16km.

Nice trail with a great view!
There are a bit too many rocks on the pathway for my taste, though, which makes the hike more difficult than necessary.

Belle petite randonnée le long du ruisseau Bearch. Le bruit de l'eau est reposant. Accessible à tous, au km 10.

Less crowded than Le Sentier des Loups. Beautiful view at the top, though the only view you get from that 16km hike.

Great hike! This trail was recommended by the park ranger. It provides a challenging climb with limited views but an incredible payoff at the summit.

Very nice trail! Hiked it up and ran it down, wouldn't rank it as a hard one though. À refaire!

Beautiful moderately difficult hike through a mesmerizing forest. There is a beautiful family-friendly lookout more than halfway up the hike then an option to continue to the summit. A bit muddy with quite a few fallen trees on the path and many roots and rocks to navigate over, but the views along the hike, especially at the lookouts were spectacular and breathtaking!

Nice loop trail around a cascading creek. My 9 year old daughter had no trouble completing this trail with me

Great, moderately difficult 5km hike up to the top of the mountain (and another 5 km back down). It took about 3:20 hrs round-trip at an easy pace with about 20 lbs pack.
A very small amount of snow near the top in first week of November and some muddy parts going up. A very nice lookout with benches at the top is a nice place to lunch.
