The trail starts at the parking lot on Bombardier Road, along the North side of Ely Creek. A 500 m access trail going west leads to a bridge where the view over the gorge is magnificent. The path to Mount Cathedral (Mont Carré) offers breathtaking views of Lake Brompton and the Mount of Three Lakes. At a modest altitude, Mount of Three Lakes offers beautiful views of Lac Simoneau, Lac des Monts and Lac Fraser thanks to the steep cliffs that border it.

Nice trails with nice views. The only thing is it was 19 KM for us and not 16 KM. Really enjoyed the creek at first with bridges. Got caught with lots of web so I can tell there’s not lots of people on this trail when you go further. For who doesn’t know: Mont Cathédrale is Mont carré. They’re apparently the same mountain. On the way up I couldn’t find Mont Cathédrale on the signs. Its an easy hike until the Y trail. The. You go left Mont Cathédrale Or right Mont des 3 lacs. I would do mont des 3 lacs first if I was to do it again. Just because that one was harder than Mont. Cathédrale. This was still an easy hike, but we all got tired toward the end. Mostly because we thought we were going to do 16 and not 19 KM.

Very easy, need a bit of brushing in several passes as the leaves are coming to the faces of the children, finishing at Ely Creek is so incredibly beautiful.

We went today and it was so beautiful.! Tough towards the end but still very nice and breezy. We saw nobody during the whole hike! So nice. A bunch of mosquitoes! There is a spot to parc your car where the map is and the trails begin there.

The trail was really nice and very well marked, muddy in some spots after a weekend of heavy rain, but beautiful view at the top of Trois Lacs and very few other hikers. If you plan on doing it, you need to be a member for entry for the trail/parking and can buy a day pass online!
