An hour and forty minutes to the top. The view of Hogback Mountain to the southwest was exceptional and the overlook on Joseph Fortin was well worth the side trip.
Climbed with Mont Joseph-Fortin via the trail from Route 160. Very cloudy, but great views all around. The lake in the col between Joseph-Fortin and Richardson is a highlight. The trails are incredibly easy - very wide with few even moderately steep areas.
Great peak with views of lots of other great peaks, many of which are without any trails.
Very nice to climb with skis. It's a very long day because the approach is long, the road that we use in summer is closed, plan a 6-7 hours round trip. Once your at the top of the first mountain, then you have to climb the cone that is still an hour to go, but very nice view of Albert and Hog's back. Also lot of snow, so enjoy, and if you dont have skis, you can rent some at the Gites du mont Albert.
A very nice hike to the top. The little lake just below the summit is really picturesque. This peak is a little different from the others in the park because it has more of a summit "cone" unlike Jacques Cartier and Mont Albert which are pretty much like big plateaus. This place looks like it would be amazing in the winter for skiing.
