Welcome to Gault Nature Reserve of Mont-Saint-Hilaire, one of the last remaining intact old-growth forests in southern Que- bec. This nature reserve is the property of McGill University since 1958. The mountain offers visitors a 25 km trail network leading over four summits with magnificent panoramic views. Since 1972, McGill University has entrusted a non-profit or- ganisation, the Mont Saint-Hilaire Nature Centre, to provide services to thousands of yearly visitors. In partnership with McGill University and the support of its 5000 members, the Nature Centre actively protects this natural heritage and also the surrounding region. In 1978, considering the unique natural wealth of the mountain, UNESCO designated Mont Saint-Hilaire the first Biosphere Reserve in Canada with the wish that it would inspire, in the whole region, the harmony between all human activities and nature. With this in mind, the Nature Centre works with the local municipalities and organizations to promote the conservation and restoration of the regional wooded areas and good practices in durable development. Please note there is a $7 entrance fee per person.

Très belle journée, n’arrivez pas passé 10h30 car vous aurez un trafic jam pour se rendre. Nous avons combiné Dieppe car pas assez long. Belle vue au sommet pour picnic. Je recommande au famille avec des enfants de plus de 7 ans.

Starts easy and gets tougher as you go so the arrival at the top is rewarding. The view is really nice and spreads really far, you can see Montréal’s olympic stadium from there. There’s enough room so you could easily enjoy a little lunch with a view around the chickadees. My advice would be to get there early. As I started hiking down at 11AM, a lot of people were coming up.

I've done this trail twice already. It has s good mix of flat and steep surfaces to hike. It gets steeper as you get close to the end but the reward is quite nice and allows you to step out from the shades of the trees. I'd recommend it if you're looking for a hike near Montreal as it's also accessible by public transport.

It's a nice leisurely hike with a great view at the end. For those looking to burn calories you could do it just over an hour. There's a great view at the end where you can see montreal in the distance. The trails were clearly marked except for the at the start which took me off course for 10 minutes. No big deal, and we saw two dears that were clearly unafraid of humans.

Loved this trail! I actually did two as a "loop", went up Burned Hill and came down Le Pain De Sucre. It is quite tough though if you are a begginer or overweight.

Easy access from Montreal. It is a very beautiful natural reserve. We go to hike there whenever we have time in the week-ends

You can do all the trails in 3-4h. The trails are all fairly easy, but it's still a fun hike just outside the city.

Superbe montagne. Il est juste dommage que les chiens y sont interdits. en monteregie, aucun mont n'accepte les chiens, on doit se déplacer a Bromont ou Sutton pour beneficier d'activités de plein air avec notre poilu à 4 pattes.
