In the Havre du Maison region, a local attraction is Butte Ronde, a steep hill with a cross raised on its high point. The cross was erected in 1913 and a rather difficult though short 1.5K trail takes you both straight up, and then around its back side, and back to the parking area. A rope hand rail has been put in place to assist this very steep climb, as the path makes a B-line for the top. No one thought of switch backs.

What a spot for a siesta! The cool off shore breezes combining with mid summer afternoon sun, make lying on the grass as attractive as the views of both the rugged coast line, the hillocks and pasture land. The return down the back is equally a fun ride. Steep sections combine with gentle curves through grasslands and a short stand of stunted forest growth. This is a fun, though technical little trail.

Directions:

Directions: Head to the lighthouse at Cap Alright taking Chemin de la Pointe Basse and Ch. des Echoueries.
