Surprisingly almost no mud in the trail to Mont Elie. The trail to Mont Menaud is new and not marked. You can find water very often so it was perfect for our dog to cool down.

Très beau sentier diversifié, plutôt difficile du fait qu'il faut monter, descendre et remonter et puis revenir ;-) pas mal de boue mais rien d'incontournable par temps sec. Très très beau point de vue panoramique sur le Charlevoix.

SUPERBE! Ne pas se laisser berner par le début de piste qui semble être une piste de VTT. Le sentier devient bucolique après + ou - 2 km. vue au sommet imprenable! Un peu de boue, mais rien d'insurmontable. ATTENTION, si vous suivez Google Maps, il vous fera prendre le mauvais chemin. Vous vous rendrez tout de même, mais dans un chemin en très mauvais état, une voiture de large, et vous manquerez l'accueil pour payer le minime droit d'accès.

Sentier un peu difficile à cause de la boue mais la vue du somment en vaut vraiment la peine. Nous l’avons fait en 6h30 mais avons pris notre temps au dîner et au sommet.

Super belle ascension de 8 km ! Quelques petits points de vue ici et là... la vraie surprise se trouve au sommet avec une vue à 360 sur Charlevoix ! Beaucoup de boue, mais plusieurs sentier de contournement ont été aménagés en conséquence...super pratique ! Nous l’avons fait à la course et il nous en a pris environ 2h20 pour monter et descendre! À refaire ! Arrivez tôt pour le stationnement! Peu de places et étroit!

Très beaux sentiers diversifiés. Un peu de boue et d'eau, donc bottes de randonnée essentielles. La vue 360 au sommet est magnifique. 40km de routes de terre pour s'y rendre, donc moins achalandée
