Tour of Mont Albert with departure and return to the lodging of Mount Albert. The ascent into the forest is long but you are rewarded at the summit with a magnificent view and a beautiful landscape of tundra. Tour du Mont Albert avec départ et retour au gîte du mont Albert. L'ascension dans la forêt est longue mais on est récompensé au sommet par une vue magnifique et un beau paysage de toundra. La descente le long d'un torrent est très belle aussi, mais très caillouteuse. Au final, une randonnée splendide, faite à la fin du mois de septembre, dans de belles couleurs d'automne.

amazing hike. Start early to have enough time to enjoy the scenery. I started mid day, I had to rush back down to make daylight.

Beautiful hike!!!! Make sure you are prepared for various terrain (i.e. hiking boots are strongly recommended) and give yourself lots of time (i.e. start early in the day).

Done in 2016. Amazing experience, the shift in landscape and the agitated weather right before reaching the summit made it an unforgettable hike!

Incredible hike! Very long hike and hard on the knees in the descent, but very rewarding!

Amazing hike! The loop is definitely worth it vs the back & forth. More difficult but the scenery on the way down of this loop is amazing. One of my best hikes of the year for sure.

A beautiful and unique experience, and a challenging day hike. Crossing the broad flat alpine tundra at the summit is surreal and the descent through the scrubby, rocky serpentine gulch is both beautiful and alien. Top it all off with a beautiful alpine lake and a waterfall at the end.

Be warned: the section down through the Serpentine rocks from around mile 4 to mile 6 is two solid miles of rock scrambling and will really drain you, particularly if you're on the shorter side.

Amazing hike though. You won't find too many anglophones making the trip, but I've done many day hikes in the east and nothing was quite like this. Not necessarily as stunning as say, the Franconia Ridge Trail, but an even more unique experience by my book.
