Amazing challenging hike done in 1day, 8h30mins / 29.3kms 1364d+ / 1392d- I parked at parking La Sablonierre, it took 2h (7kms) to get to Johansen peak, I then took the Sommets road for a while doing peak Pangman and peak Edge then took the Sasquatch road for 2.1kms then vertigo road until I crossed paths with Johansen road (5kms to the peak) and 7km to get back from Johansen peak to the parking. Really fun hike but pretty muddy. Doable in 1day if you have a high fitness level

Fun route for a trail run! Toits de Laurentides was in pretty good shape, some minor muddy patches that are dying out. Johanssen is quite muddy in spots but manageable.

It was a great challenge for hikers. There are parts that are very steep which take longer than usual. I camped at around the 21km. It is hard, even impossible, to find a spot for a tent after that. It is better to wear boots if you have a full backpack because it is very muddy, steep, and rough road.

A good challenging hike, we did it in two days with full ruck sacks for overnight. the trail is a hybrid of their and back with a loop and your actually doing "Le Toit-des-Laurentides" then a loop of "Johansen". very steep in sections and was quite muddy in parts but very few people on trail. I'd say without packs you could maybe do the full loop in 10hrs
