Several accesses lead to the Stoke Mountains. The trail leading to Mount John Guillemette starts at Rang 8 and offers a certain level of difficulty because it requires you to climb a first summit, go down, and go up to reach the views of John Guillemette. For the return, it is possible to take an alternative path for a little more than one kilometer to change the landscape, or to retrace your steps completely.

We left the rank # 8 towards Mount John Guillemette. for the return we had parked a car at rank # 10. there was a lot of snow and it was not typed so it took longer than expected. 5hrs in total. When we reached the top of Mount John Guillemette we did not even realize that we were there so much that there is no point of view. So not recommended if you go for the point of view. Very good training. A lot of cardio especially with the snow.

Usually, I hike with my spouse. This time, I went alone and I would not do it again with her. The energy-reward ratio is too low. Only some "points of view", but which are not impressive (see photos). On the other hand, the route requires several climbs and decents, which makes it more demanding than several others carried out previously. In short, a hike to get in shape, but not to appreciate the relief of the region!

Trail typed for the next !! Often snow to the knee with a small racket
