Ascent Trip Report

Following my ascent of mont du lac Drouin, I stopped here on the way back towards Québec. I drove south on boulevard Talbot, turning left on 1ère avenue and going under RTE 175. I then took a right on chemin de la Sagamité and followed it south. There were more and more mountain bikers riding on this gravel road as I went further and when I reached the vicinity of the aerials access trail on mont du Domaine, there were tons of cars parked on the roadside. I parked at the junction for the trail and took only my camera and GPS with me.

I jogged along the moderately steep paved road that started ascending right off chemin de la Sagamité. About halfway up, I looked back and saw a mountain biker started to climb behind me. I soon reached an area where the road was still covered in snow, at the fork for the first aerial. I followed the edge of the trail as the snow was thinner there and when I reached the second aerial, I saw there was no snow in the forest so I started bushwhacking towards the summit. When I reached the clearing for the third aerial, I had to cross a watery snowfield before getting back in the forest near the summit. It was a very flat area but it was obviously the high point. I started back down almost immediately and followed the trail this time.

When I reached the pavement, the biker was turning around in front of me and he descended ahead as I followed. I ran some of the way down and was quickly back at the car. From there I went back to boulevard Talbot and then on HWY 175 back towards home.
