Mount Pinacle, Coaticook

(4.7/5 based on 55 reviews on the web)
Mount Pinacle is a mountain located in Coaticook, Quebec Canada. There are 7.8km of trails on the mountain, which hikers may use free of charge. Experienced rock climbers may scale the face of the hill starting from Lake Lyster. The mountain is exploited for its abundance of maples, with a sugar bush running along a portion of its trails.HistoryThe hill has been officially known as Le Pinacle since 1978.In 2013, part of the hill was closed to rock climbing due to the nesting of peregrine falcons on Mount Pinacle.In June 2014, a 10-year-old child on a field trip went to the emergency room after surviving a 10 metre fall down a crevice on the mountain. Approximately a dozen firefighters were onsite for two hours rescuing the child, although he was not gravely injured.

  • Short hike which takes 20-30 minutes (the last bit is very peak, but not very long, however plan a good pair of shoes). Happened all at the top, a view breathtaking will wait for you. I me make more summer or autumn, where the colors will be more majestic. However, you can get there in the spring and winter (although their site says that hiking is closed in the winter, I go there often and I see a lot of other hikers). In summer, take a lunch for dinner upstairs. You can sunbathe in the Sun and you sit on many flat rocks that will wait for you.
