Ascent Trip Report

Too nice a fall day to stay home, decided to go back to the townships for some hiking south of Magog. I would visit 5 very small Collines.
From AutoRoute 55, exit 2 (Stanstead), I went west .3km and picked-up Chemin Hackett (becomes Chemin Laflamme) and followed it north 3.5km to a main 4-way junction with cemetery on corner "Ruiters Corners".

COLLINE MILLER ... dirt road northbound ... 1.6km, 30 minutes RT
I turned left at the 4-way Junction on Chemin Riviere and went west .85km to a roped-off dirt road on the right, signed "Privee" (just over the crest-of-the-road with MB#790 & #810). This was my TH.
I walked the dirt road north .5km, then northeast across a harvested bean field .2km directly to the open summit.
I went back to the 4-way corner.

COLLINE PINKHAM ... .6km, 18 minutes RT
From the 4-way Junction I went north on Chemin Laflamme for 1.2km and parked at harvested corn field just before an E-W Tree-Row on the right.
I walked east on the south side of the Tree-Row (somewhat hidden from farm buildings on other side of the Tree-Row) for 300 meters to the open harvested corn field summit.

Both of these summits are in private open fertile fields and should be visited after the harvest. They don't have much to offer. The view from its summits is not much better than just driving around the area roads .... beautiful farm country with rolling hills. I rate them "For Peakbaggers Only".

After this quick visit to these 2 Collines I found-my-way northwest to Colline du Porc-Epic.
