Very much enjoyed this "hike". Only about 120 m of vertical but still gets your heart rate up if you walk quickly. Path 1 was tougher than path 4 on the way up. The top is filled with very good views of Lake Lyster below from various angles. Walk around to find your favourite ones. Grabbed a fantastic milk shake... More

It's not easy to find the location and entrance. The best way is to ask a local tourism map in the information center in Parc de la Gorge or downtown Coaticook. BTW, you can taste the famous Coaticook ice cream on Rue Child. The trail is very easy. I saw lots of kids hiked with their parents. However, when you... More

We liked the variety of trails we could use to go at the top. We don't hike regularly but it was do-able, good exercise! Great views. Also lots of Pokemon on the trail! Haha who would have thought!

Definitely recommendable. Hike climbing up took a little less than an hour I think. Coming down was definitely faster. We spent a few hours up there just watching the eagles, the little birds, the boats and of course the amazing view. You can even go down to the little beach nearby for a swim & view mount pinacle from there.

Mount Pinacle is decent sized mountain with several trails to chose from depending on one's hiking style. It is an easy hike with a great view. Fires, camping, bikes, motorcycles or snowmobiles are not aloud. This is to preserves the nature of the place. It is closed from the beginning of November in till May.

The hike was uphill most of the way, on sometimes narrow and rocky paths, but once you reach the top the view is beautifully stunning.

This is an intermediate hike, but absolutely breathtaking once you get to the summit. Very family friendly! Takes about an hour up and back. You can also bring a picnic and eat at the top. Parking is free and close by. Great pics!
