The trail consists of a paved (private) road that leads to the top of the mountain. At the large junction, if you turn right, you will reach a small lake (St-Pie aqueduct). To the summit of Mount Yamaska, turn left instead and follow the signs to the antenna at the top. The road gets more bumpy and climbs to the top.

The view is stunning at the top, breathtaking for such a small mountain. If the weather is nice, you're probably going to meet people on paragliders or paragliders. The trail itself is non-existent, it's more like a road that crosses maple groves and private land. It's a blast at the top! Very nice view of the surrounding area.

Mt. Yamaska was formed around 125 million years ago during an underwater eruption of magma. This magma has not penetrated the earth's surface and has a deep fig. La colline est apparue lors de l'érosion par les glaciers des roches sédimentaires avoisinantes, plus fragile que la roche métamorphique formée par le touch du magma et de la roche sédimentaire.

Mount Yamaska is a 410-metre high mountain situated in Saint-Paul-d'Abbotsford. It is geologically one of the nine Montérégiennes hills south of Quebec.

The ecosystem of Mount Yamaska is abundant and diversified. This serves a sanctuary pour bien des plantes et animaux, of which some twenty are in danger of disappearing. On the other side, this woodland massif is private and is shared by approximately 200 owners. We are acericulturists, woodland farmers, nature lovers, etc., and they want to enjoy the wealth they have at home.

The initiative "Protection et développement durable du mont Yamaska" (Protection and Sustainable Development of Mount Yamaska) aims to raise awareness of the mountains and, on places of great natural value, to assist concerned owners to improve their property while protecting the environment and its wildlife.
