Why choose this trail?


Dome Mountain is located within the Martres zec in the Charlevoix region. It is a mountain in the Lake Jacques-Cartier massif that rises to 975 meters.



As we all know, Mont D么me is not as populated as its compatriot Mont du Lac-des-Cygnes, which is 2 kilometers away.



Anyway, interesting fact, because it is always nice to enjoy solitary moments in nature. Compared to its partner, Mont de Dome is also simpler and shorter. Therefore, it is a good choice for a pleasant and relaxing day hike, with the last view at the height  of Mont du Lac-des-Cygnes.



One of the reasons why hiking is appreciated is mainly the different views of the landscape. Well, at this level, the climb to  Dome Mountain is more than enough for us.



The price of access :



Admission is free. However, a voluntary contribution is suggested. Note that the Dome Mountain is open during all year round.
