The walking path that begins at Lac à l’Est and climbs Mont Élie over nearly 8 km (one way) and represents a intermediate/advanced level of difficulty. There is a refuge at Lac Éclair at the 6th km; camping in the wild is a possibility on this site. Signage provides guidance to hikers and the summit unfolds breathtaking views. The Zec leases a yurt located at Lac à l’Est.

Trail a bit difficult because of the mud but the view from the top is well worth it. We did it at 6:30 but took our time at dinner and at the top.

Super nice climb of 8 km! A few small points of view here and there ... the real surprise is at the top with a 360 view of Charlevoix! A lot of mud, but several bypass paths have been developed accordingly ... super convenient! We did it in the race and it took us about 2h20 to go up and down! To do again! Arrive early for parking! Few places and narrow!

Very beautiful diversified paths. A bit of mud and water, so essential hiking boots. The 360 view at the top is beautiful. 40km of dirt roads to get there, so less busy
