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! 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.
