Description

This trail is well used and accesses the Serpentine Hut at the base of some of the best skiing off Mt. Albert. Start at the Ruisseau Isabelle parking lot and continue on the skin/sled track along the powerlines for a few hundred meters. Just after crossing a creek, the track will turn left onto a wide road that goes all the way up to the Serpentine hut. The ski trail is well-signed along the way. The hut has a wood stove and offers a fantastic view of the patroller's wall.
