Ascent Trip Report

Maybe one of the nicest day hikes in all of Quebec, doing the loop route "tour du Mont Albert", which is about 18 km total. Descending la Grande Cuve is the highlight for me, with unique colors for Quebec because of the serpentine rocks. Open views on top and much of the way down.
