This is a super all rock mountain with trails/climbing walls/hang-gliding platform/star gazing chairs/viewing platforms. A private owned property operated by the municipality of Sainte-Clotilde-de-Beauce.
From the village of Sainte-Clotilde I drove north on 271 for abt 4km to a left on Rte Latullipe, 3.1km right on 11e Rang, 1.4km right on Chemin de la Grande Ligne, .2km right to the entrance/parking of Mont Grande Morne, paid a 2$ user fee.
I climbed the gravel road .8km to the top. I first went to the west summit (observation platform, hang-gliding platform) then to the main peak with an observation platform, GPS 46.13816,-71.09718. In between is a rock outcrop with star gazing chairs.
Views of the whole area are available through out the hike.
This is short hike, the total climb to both peaks is just 1.1km, 25 minutes.
