Located on the south shore of lake Kénogami, the Lake Kénogami hiking trail is nearly 40 km long. Sprinkled with lakes, rivers and creeks, the trail is representative of the Laurentian’s wildlife and plants (boreal and mixed). All along your route, magnificent views of lake Kénogami and the plain of Lake Saint-Jean will beautifully punctuate your hike. Not being accessible by motorized vehicles, you will find calm as lived the first explorers. In Hébertville, the trail begins at the top of the slopes of the Mont Lac-Vert ski Center and in Laterrière, by the path of the Simoncouche River, between km 221 and 222 of QC-175 south.

During the winter season, from November 1 to May 15, it is possible to snowshoe on the Lake Kénogami hiking trail, however, for safety reasons, only the two ends of the trail are accessible. The first section extends from km 0 at Mont Lac-Vert to km 9.5 at Cap-à-l'Aigle. At the other end, at the entrance of the trail at km 221.5 of QC- 175 southe, the trail is open from km 39.6 to shelter Cooperative Laterrière.

This magnificent cliff dominates the Lake Kénogami. Overlooking the Lake Kénogami, this pitch, remained wild, rises to 75 meters above the rockslide of large blocks.

Attention access restrictions for falcon nesting: no climbing is allowed on the left of the pitch (front view) throughout the year. Climbing is permitted only in the right sector and only from August 1st to March 1st.
