Ascent Trip Report

A very long day of hiking and trail running which included summitting this rather remote hill in the Laurentians. Not a single peak but more of a ridge with multiple little summits, Mont Sir-Wilfrid offers some nice wilderness terrain. I ended up taking the #5 trail but got a bit lost on the way down, had to backtrack and eventually ended up returning via the #1 trail. Good summit views but otherwise the trails are mostly in the trees, with only occassional glimpses of the surrounding landscape. - I had some wildlife sightings and also saw plenty of evidence that black bears were around.
