A hidden gem of a trail. We parked at the school parking lot on Highland St in Sutton and walked towards the mountain. The trail follows a creek/river nearly the whole way. We were only out for a leisure stroll so we didn’t make it to the end.
5 km out and back trail ends at the base of the mountain. Apparently the end destination Marmite aux sorcieres - Witches cauldron, is worth the view. Maybe next time.
Sentier Village-Montagne is very family friendly and easy with very gradual elevation and stairs for steeper sections.
Highly recommend for an afternoon or a 1 hour jaunt in the woods.
At the mountain you can also access a 50km network of trails maintained by Parc d’environnement naturel de Sutton. This is a fee access area.
To reach this Rogart Mountain trail, Google maps directed me down Kemptown Road, a dirt road which wouldn't have been my first choice. But it turned out for the best. Good driving conditions and en route passed a parking lot with info sign for the remote 13K wilderness part of the Gully Lake Trail system - where I will hike another day!! https://www.sugarmoon.ca/hike/trail-maps/
Due to hurricane Dorian a couple weeks earlier , it was slow-going on this beautiful wilderness trail: blocked by many huge timber blowdowns that we had to circumvent, then search in the underbrush for the next orange trail markers. Branches and random-sized twigs with leaves littered the forest floor. Quite an adventure - we had a paper guide but again I was thankful for having downloaded the route on my AllTrails App to help direct us back towards the trail.
