Had the "Indians" / original settlers seen this polar bear image back in the day I am curious as to what they would named the mountain.

Groomer, do you know anything about the odd shaped building on top of the hill in Matapedia? I saw it this year but don't remember seeing it last year.

Thanks!

bonsoir  p hardy !!!

 

we wanted to go up there....went to post office ,next to train station....but the woman had a broken french mixed with a broken english ...i think she was kind of confused...she said ,after crossing rd 132 ...you should find a trail to go there...after crossing rd 132 ...up the valley , as soon its flat ....hard right hand corner....with a trail on the left....there was old tracks...we were already late a bit ...so , did nt go...

this morning i checked on google earth ...looks like the trail don t  make it to the belvedere !!!

between post office and drug store...there s afew hundred feet trail...with  stop sign next to rd 132 .....but on the other side of the rd....narrow trail with snowshoes tracks !!!

i thought the trail was going in the ditch to reack that rd on the left side of the belvedere....no sled tracks there ...

pics from a friends...back in december !!!

Cool Pictures! We were running short on time too, or we would have liked to try to find our way up. Likely be next year now. I think I have a bit of an idea of where that trail is, thanks for the map!
