Mont Saddle

The Secret

Altitude: 972 m
Drop: 540 m
Length: 14 km
Type: Appalachians, unique trail
Duration: 6:00
Level: Advanced

A well-kept secret! Crossed by the Canadian-American border, this mountain can only be accessed from Montagne de Marbre. This hike is perfect for a full escape. Rookies, stay away! Sometimes nicknamed the “horseback” because of its shape, this mountain offers a change of scenery and is a real athletic challenge. In the summer, the trail is lined with small raspberry bushes and ferns. Careful, very ripe strawberries can stain your clothes if you touch them! To make your calves work even harder, tackle this mountain in winter. It’s a great way to use up all your extra energy! Whether you choose a summer or winter hike, you’ll be astounded by the beauty of the landscape all around you.

Take a photo with the Rencontre au Sommet sign … it’s one of the hardest to reach and is worth its weight in gold!

*Mont Saddle is closed in the fall during hunting season.
