“A beautiful, but tricky climb from the village over two peaks and back.”— Kevin Ketchman
i.e. You may want to brush up on your french, n'est pas?
To this point, you'll have climbed 200-300 feet, but the remaining 1,700 feet all comes within the next 2 miles along the Johannsen Trail. Early on the trail you'll come to a stream crossing over a wooden bridge. This is the wettest section of the circuit, with the trail covered in pine needles, mostly soaking wet (although I was there during a rainy spell), and steep sections with boulders, fallen trees, and boggy parts. However, it offers a ton of fun for those who like the challenge.
At the top of the climb, you'll know when you've reached the top because the trail will FINALLY give some feeling of leveling out, you'll come to a marker with a quote in french. It's pretty cool and is accompanied with a view.
Turn right, and head down the Sommets Trail (blazed in pink and white). You're now on your way to connecting between Johannsen and Tremblant peaks. At one point along this trail, maybe 3/4 mile, you'll come to an opening and you'll be able to see Tremblant peak, and a gully you'll have to run down to get to the peak. Note, at this opening the trail is across the field and to the right side.
At the end of the Sommets Trail, you have two routes to the Tremblant summit using the same trail, 360 trail. Once at the Tremblant summit, take in some great 360 degree views. Then head down the mountain using the Grand Brule Trail (red and white blaze). This trail is 180 degrees opposite of the Johannsen Trail. It is much drier, rockier and has several overlooks from atop huge rock outcroppings. Be careful at these rock outcroppings, because the trail will take you down a few short drops, and makes turns with minimal blazing.
The Grand Brule Trail dumps you out back where you started, having taken you for a beautiful trek around Mount Tremblant.
