Ascent Trip Report

An easy trail/bushwack from the summit's east side Chemin Dunant ..... 2.4km, 45min RT.

We are out for another day of County Highpointing, having found our way to the beautiful quaint village of North Hatley, at the top end of the long/narrow Lac Massawippi, we traveled Hwy #108 eastbound for about 5km to a left turn on Chemin Dunant. Then (north) another 2.7km to Chemin Rogers on the right. Find a place to park on this corner Dunant/Rogers, this is the TH .....south of here Chemin Dunant has very narrow shoulders and therefore unsafe to park.

Walk back on Chemin Dunant for 300M (you can see the highpoint to your right, west) to the top of the bend, at a road sign with "a rider on a horse". On the right is a property fence line heading in the same direction as the Highpoint .....generally west. South side of the fence is a huge farm (open grass field with number of buildings), north side is an evergreen grove.
A good grass path leaves the road and follows the fence line to its right(north side, along the edge of the evergreens). At the end of the fence (about 400M) there is a grass track that continues in the same direction. At about 200M where it bends to the right I started my bushwack following the above noted compass reading.
The easy going is in open woods with no obstacles, always look for the path of least resistance and the high ground. At about 900M from the road reach the obvious wooded summit offering no views. A north-south herd path runs over the summit which I pink flagged.
Unfortunately I forgot my GPS and couldn't check the PB Coordinates.

I returned and same way and being a PB I decided to go over and bag the near-by Belvedere-Heights Mountain (see its TR) that is in the PB library. We drove east on Chemin Rogers.
