Boucle du sommet - Mont Gosford

Mont Gosford randonnée pédestre

This loop enables you to climb southern Quebec’s highest peak (1193 m). It follows the Arnold River, crosses through a mature, untapped sugar bush, and reaches the barren summit in steep inclines. From the observation tower, you’ll have a panoramic 360-degree view towards the mountains in the northeastern United States. The trail then descends via the Du col (#8) trail and returns to the reception centre via the Ruisseau Morin (#6) trail. Possibility to lunch and warm up half way at the Rose-Délima pavilion (at km 6) or to make a stop at the three-sided shelter of the ruisseau du Cap (at km 8).
