Bit of a hike, some areas more steep than others, but the trails are reasonably marked. Once you get to the top, the views are excellent and sitting on the pinacle gives you a great sense of accomplishment and you really take in the beauty. Loved it.

Short easy hike, about 45 minutes from the church parking lot. Park at the church beside the little restaurant . We missed it so be careful... many trails to choose from once you get going. You could do all in one day but the main ones are the best for the view. There was a school field trip there when... More

I don't think you can get a better reward for a mere 35 min hike to the top. Super cool views year round. What an excellent job Parc Harold F Baldwin has done preserving this gem for the rest of us to experience. Keep the park local, Coaticook out of Baldwin!

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.

We were looking go hiking nearby montreal since Quebec is known for nice hiking spots. Came across Mount Pinacle and just absolutely loved it. It was a bit hard for the first hike of the season but WOW once you get to the top its pure heaven. The view is stunning and the hike was not that hard but it... More
