Ascent Trip Report

Les Amis des sentiers de Bromont have developped an excellent network of year-round multi-purpose trails in the Lac Gale/Mont Gale area, known as "Domaine Natural du Lac Gale", just west of the Mont Brome ski hill. Trial maps are available at the local Tourist Information Center.

I started at the TH parking on chemin Lac Gale and hiked a clockwise loop around the Lac Gale, ascended Mont Gale and back to TH. Easy moderate hike thru a deciduous forest. The summit offers good views to the south of the Lac.
To get to this TH from Bromont drive south on chemin de Gaspe for 3.9km to a right turn on dirt road, chemin du Lac Gale, then another 3km to the TH parking on the right (west).

"THE REWARD OF A THING WELL DONE IS TO HAVE DONE IT".
