We went out on one of the best days of the summer of 2017, Sept 24th. It was 27 Celsius, most unusual but it was not too hot. The trail is kept to a very high standard, many staircases and walkways are made of stone blocks harvested nearby, the work of a master stone mason. The forest is beautiful and the ascent will challenge with out killing anyone, but better be in decent cardio shape. We ended up adding a 8 k loop at the far north end for a total of 18 km. It was all worth it, highly recommended.
Bring a swim suit on a nice day, the lake is beautiful and there is public access and services.
You will not regret the drive there (very easy from MTL). Proud of the way our national parks are kept.
We are already programming a return.

Great afternoon hike! Went East around the loop as was recommended to me by the ranger. Easier ascent that way. The hike itself is all through woods, which was nice on a warm day with very little breeze like today. It is a quite moist trail, so there were lots of bugs that seemed to have no spacial awareness. It got old after awhile. The views were awesome, particularly at the summit. It's only a few extra steps off the loop, so don't bypass it. It was my favorite part! Lots of roots and rocks and uneven terrain. Hiking poles are not necessary, but would be helpful.
