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.
Partners. A quick selfie while @toesalad strains snowmelt through a cloth to remove big chunks of detritus. The snow looks so clean when you scoop it but has a lot of plant particles in it. Let’s hope it’s mostly plant material!
After straining we’ll boil for tea or cooking or we’ll filter for our water bladders.
