Wonderful place; you forget work and family; you just walk and appreciate. After reaching the totally white hill range top, you have a view of the entire area. Somebody put a geocache there and called it "Top of the World".

The hill range is made of pure quartz. Once on top, even 8,000 years after the retreat of the glaciers, you do not find a millimeter of organic matter.

The trail I did, is a loop of 10 km long, with elevation varying between 1955 and 2760 feet. It is relatively easy, except for a section of 400 m long, climbing the hill, in the wood, with no trail.

On top of the hill, you can see Labrador City, Wabush, the alpine ski trails, mining installations of Wabush Mines and Iron Company of Canada; two of the three iron ore producers of the country. The third one, Quebec Cartier Mining, is only 40 km west from there.

The north end portion of the trail is using the trails of the Nordic Ski Club.

Unfortunately, you have to go back to your car. The last 2 km, on the gravel road, are boring.

Directions:

From Highway 500 at Labrador City, you take the road going to the local ski hill. You leave your car at 800 meters from the intersection. There is no indication; but a nice place to park.

See GPS data for further details.
