I have been to this park many times since I adopted Enzo. However, it was the first time we went in winter and we were not disappointed!
We arrived around 9:30am and there were already many cars in the parking lot. When we left, around 12pm, the parking lot was at maximum capacity. What I really enjoy about this park is that there are so many different trails. In the end, even if the parking lot is full, you won’t come across many people. While we were there, we saw about 5 other groups of hikers. Not too bad.
As well as the many trails, the park has many summits: Mont Cesaire, Mont Condor-Ouest, Mont Condor-Est, Mont King, Mont MacMaster and Mont Iceberg. It isn’t your typical hike, where you get to the top and then back down. You can actually get to many summits in one hike and you get to decide what trails you want to take.
When I went, I hiked Mont Condor-Ouest and Mont Condor-Est. Usually I hike Mont King as well and it ends up being around a 3 hours hike.
Again, I decided to make a little video to show you the trails and the view at the top of Mont Condor-Ouest and Mont Condor-Est.
The trails are super easy to follow. There are signs everywhere and maps throughout the hike that tell you where you are. Spikes or snowshoes are mandatory during winter and you need to call ahead of time to know which one is the more appropriate according to the weather. The entrance fees are 10,00$ for an adult and free for people younger than 18 years old. There are no fees for dogs.
