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 moun- tain, UNESCO designated Mont Saint-Hilaire the first Bio- sphere 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 organisations to promote the con- servation and restoration of the regional wooded areas and good practices in durable development.

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.
