Why choose this trail?

Harold F. Baldwin Park is a special place! It is known as a great place for hiking. It offers a great view and a great place for any nature lover. Want to know more about this magical place?

The network of hiking trails attracts hikers of all ages who enjoy the magnificent views from the top of the mountain.

A 7 km (round trip) hike takes you to the top of Pinnacle Mountain and provides a breathtaking view of Lyster Lake and the surrounding mountains.

Beautiful views of Lyster Lake can be seen from many rocky headlands. These rocky headlands are not a good place to lose your footing, as they offer a bird's eye view of a towering cliff. This 190-meter cliff is also a favorite of the Fédération québécoise de la montagne et de l'escalade climbing enthusiasts.

Please note that this place is closed from November to May. And that the fee to access it is 6$.

Whether it's about the peregrine falcons nesting on the wall, the basics of rock climbing, the history of the village or the tourist attractions of the region, the guides will welcome you and answer your questions all summer long.

It is closed in winter and the trails are free to access during this period.
