Ascent Trip Report

After Peakbagging summit with its old antenna/dish inside some trees, I attempted Geocaching and found myself crossing into an old campground /ski area with a fence line constantly thwarting progress toward caches within sight of an old road; a return to the Blvd dead end suggested a drive around corner to Rue des Tulipes' dead-end which led me on to a 4-way trail junction (ATV track and local dog walk) where hiking toward caches led discovery of a gap in the fence line (with its very own trip hazard) going on over to condo parking area, a return to my wheels by way of after-summit drive around Rue Carole's corner suggesting some longer alternatives of a woods walk around Mont-Laval.
