Private lots leading to the summit

The trail consists of a paved (private) path 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). At the top of Mount Yamaska, turn left and follow the signs for the antenna at the top. The road becomes more bumpy and climbs to the summit.

The view is magnificent at the top, breathtaking for such a small mountain. If the weather is good, you will probably meet people paragliding or gliding. The trail itself is non-existent, it is rather a road that crosses maple groves and private land. It's an explosion at the summit! Very nice view of the surroundings.

Mount Yamaska was formed about 125 million years ago during an underwater eruption of magma. This magma did not penetrate the surface of the earth and has a deep fig. The hill appeared during the erosion by glaciers of the surrounding sedimentary rocks, more fragile than the metamorphic rock formed by the contact of magma and sedimentary rock.

Located in Saint-Paul-d'Abbotsford

Mount Yamaska is a 410-metre high mountain located in Saint-Paul-d'Abbotsford. It is geologically one of the nine Monteregian Hills in southern Quebec.

Mount Yamaska's ecosystem is abundant and diverse. It serves as a sanctuary for many plants and animals, about twenty of which are threatened with extinction. On the other hand, this forest massif is privately owned and is shared by about 200 owners. We are maple syrup producers, forest farmers, nature lovers, etc. and they want to take advantage of the wealth they have at home.

The "Protection and Sustainable Development of Mount Yamaska" initiative aims to raise awareness of the mountain and, in places of great natural value, to help the owners concerned improve their property while protecting the environment and its wildlife.

Things not to be missed




Discover the Montérégie

Mont Rougemont is part of the Montérégie region in southwestern Quebec. This region is located halfway between the two cities of Ottawa and Quebec City, and stretches from the St. Lawrence River to the border with the United States Ḕtats.

From a tourism point of view, the Montérégie is very varied, alternating between rural and urban landscapes. It is not by chance that tourists in this region have a wide range of things to do.

In the Montérégie, one can dedicate oneself to different activities, first of all to agrotourism. With its production of apples, cider and sugar shacks, the region is one of the favorite destinations for gourmet tourists from all over the world, who are eager to try the flavors of the territory.

Not to mention sports: in Montérégie you can enjoy the outdoors all year round, hiking, biking, boating, cross-country skiing... Or again: here nature lovers can discover incredible landscapes by visiting the two national parks of the region and the Parc Safari de Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle.

The Montérégie region is also active from a cultural point of view: numerous historical sites, museums and galleries offer the possibility to travel back in time, discovering archaeological remains from our past or contemporary artworks.

In conclusion, we cannot fail to mention the shows that take place in the different theaters of the region. The first of them is the Juliette-Lassonde Arts Centre in Saint-Hyacinte, which stages the most beautiful theatrical productions of dance, music, circus and cabaret every year.
