This trail extends from Lake Ouareau to Lake Archambault, via Lake Lemieux. From the west, the departure is on Wall Road in the Archambault Valley, an area affected by logging a few years ago. Subsequently, the trail climbs gently a first summit and goes down to Lake Lemieux bypassing its southern part. The climb to the summit of Mount Ouareau is difficult but short. Its summit culminates at an altitude of 685 meters and offers a vast panorama. On the other side of the mountain, there will be a view of Lake Ouareau, with an area of 1,744 hectares.
