Ascent Trip Report

A short easy outing in a Community Park to an obvious bump ..... 2km, 1HR RT.

The main entrance and parking lot for Parc Centenaire William Cosgrove is on the north side of the parc at the corner of rue Lake/Manual (1.6km west of Blvd des Sources or .5km east of Tecumseh). For the hiker the park offers nature trails in a deciduous forest and around a man made lake in addition to the obvious High Point (reached from different directions).
The easy walk to the High Point rewards the hiker with a nice panorama of the Montreal West Island.

NB: PB wrongly names the high point, it should be Parc Centenaire W Cosgrove High Point
