With its 100km of trails, Mont Brome offers visitors a wide choice of trails adapted to all levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced) and to all types of hikers (families, groups...). What is interesting is that almost all the trails are accessible free of charge for residents, when tourists have to pay a different rate depending on the type of trail. Anyway, the price is quite economical!
Recommended hiking trail Bromont
If this is the first time you come to Mont Brome, you should know that in this locality the routes are divided between three networks:

The most famous trail is called C1 (or Hiking Belt) and connects the mountain's network with that of Oak Mountain. The loop trail is about 15km long and is of medium difficulty.
