Hiked here in beautiful Autumn foliage. Lots of other hikers out even on a Thursday afternoon. Views from Burned Hill aren't much to write about but Pain de Sucre has fabulous views over the Richelieu valley and to Montreal.

Tip #1 -BEWARE-NO DOGS ALLOWED. I am surprised this is not made clear on the website, by reviewers, no clear obvious, signs on site, or when you pay to get in. This is something that can ruin your day if you arrive with your pets...More
