New trail map for Mont Rigaud

Recommended Posts

On this rainy late summer day that is feeling more and more like the start of fall, I was checking out Mont Rigaud's website and noticed that they seem to have updated their trail map.

I'll be up-front, I've never visited this mountain but it's on my short list for the near future. It seems that there is a new trail that was not on the map previously, trail #12, to the right of the O'Keefe trail. It's marked as a glade... Anyone familiar with this mountain know if it's new, or something that previously existed but only now is being recognized on the map?

Thanks.

No, it's not new. It seems to be new on the map, but it's been accessible for a long time. I went there for the first time probably 12-14 years ago, and I remember it being there. In the past, the "off-the-map" glade usually started near that little drop on the top section, near the sun ray on the map. It's very possible they added a small section so it's accessible from the top of the hill. Don't be fooled by the black diamond rating though - it's quite flat, like the green trail beside it. It's probably one of the flattest downhill slopes I've been on, i.e. you're using your poles to walk a large part of the time. The flip-side though is that it's nice and long given the vertical of the mountain. I've attached some pictures of the glade I've taken.
