“The knoll is viewed from the chalet and all parts of the lower trail network... climb it!”— Betty Anne Fequet
Just beyond and up from the storage shed by the ski trail, turn onto Snowshoe Trail D3. The incline is moderate with a few steep bits right to the intersection of D6. Snowshoe Trail D6 becomes steep but not dangerously so as there are trees to grasp along the way. Pass the intersection with D7, continue climbing up and past the intersection with E3, climb a little farther, then reach the summit. That wasn't so hard.
The trail back down is quite relaxing. Snowshoe Trail D6 crosses Games Trail and merges with D1. Do the second lap of D1 in reverse for a quick return to the chalet. This is the shortest route to take in D6 and the knoll.
