Climbing Mont Harfang

Climbing Mont Harfang

Useful tips

  • We recommend that you park at Km 352 and walk along the road to begin your hike at Km 349.

  • The south trail is shorter and steep.

  • The north trail is longer but less steep. It does not provide access to the alpine plateaus of the main mountain range.

  • Some sections of the trails are uneven (presence of rocks and roots), muddy and very wet, especially during rainy periods. Be sure to have appropriate footwear.

  • There are a great many flies from June 24 to September 1. It is important to bring long protective clothing, fly repellent and a head net.

  • Using the trails before June 1 is not advisable. There is often snow left on the trails until the end of June.

  • Walking sticks are recommended.
