Nice trails, staff and great views but mosquitoes and black flies almost ruined the experience, had to keep moving and couldn’t enjoy the view for too long due to the biting bugs. Highly recommended as long as you have bug spray.

The Mont Du Lac des Signes (swan lake) is one of the high peaks in Quebec. It's very easy to get to the summit... you could almost get there with a walker. If you're in climbing mountains or trails you'll be disappointed.

Great hike with a beautiful viewpoint at the top, from which we spotted a moose. The park is clean, well-maintained and has excellent facilities (dry toilets along the trail). We highly recommend bug spray (those black flies are everywhere), however there is a picnic area...More
