Mt. Ham is about 2 hours from Montreal in Quebec’s Eastern Townships. We hiked the “Intrepid” Trail, a 1.7 km hike up to the summit where we were blessed with impressive 360 degree views. Far away we could see Mont-Megantic and Mont-Orford. The views are quite awesome.

I have mixed feelings about the hike though. What we didn’t like at Mont Ham is the trail, which features a lot of mud and loose rocks. Lissette is a nervous hiker and doesn’t like loose rocks. If your girlfriend doesn’t love hiking in the first place, this is not the mountain to bring her to. On the other hand, if you’re an experienced hiker and a billygoat on rocks you’ll manage the ascent quite easily and will enjoy the views on the top.
