|Mont Gosford is actually part of the same White Mountains that make New Hampshire famous|
The Mont Gosford area is famous in Quebec for its hunting and hiking opportunities and the residents of the area are every bit as rough and tumble as the Mainers on the other side of the border. Mt Gosford is well hiked but remains as a wilderness. The Sentiers Frontaliers Trail of Quebec takes advantage of old logging roads, trails and the boundary swath as a long distance hiking trail which includes many of the tallest summits of the area. I suppose you could consider it a Mini-Appalachian Trail for Quebec. (although, the International Appalachian Trail of Quebec is also a good long distance hike)
|The trails of Mont Gosford are very well maintained|
I was able to make it to the summit in just under 1.5 hours. It was a little steep in some sections but nothing that any New England hiker is not accustomed to. I would recommend buying a map or bringing a map as all the distances and signs are in French (obviously) and it can be confusing to those of us who know not a lick of the language!
