    Wright Mountain is a fun spot for hiking and mountain climbing (for which you need to be an accredited mountain climber), and it's located just 30 km north of Quebec City, in the town of Stoneham. You need a car to get there but access to the site is free, and so is parking. The park's 6.5 km of hiking trails lead through a 300-year-old forest all the way to the top of the mountain at 483 m above sea level. You can choose to go the quick and hard (but fun!) way or you can choose the trail that gently loops around the mountain for an easier climb. The park used to belong to the Wright family who bequeathed it to the town of Stoneham when the last of their descendants passed away in the 1970s. It is now carefully being developped by a forest association who's dedicated to letting people discover the park while making every effort to preserve the mountain's amazing ecology and biodiversity. Wright Mountain also becomes a great spot for snowshoeing in the wintertime :o)

    Stoneham is my favvorite ski...

    Stoneham is my favvorite ski hill in the Québec region. Even thought not as big has St-Anne, I find the trails more panoramic and you can get a longer ride off them. This mountain has been chosen within the top 10 familly oriented mountains in north-america and the top 5 in best snowpark.

    Stoneham est ma station de ski préférée de autour de la ville de Québec. Quoique plus petite que St-Anne, je trouve les pistes plus panoramiques et aussi plus étendues. Stoneham a aussi été choisie parmi les 10 meilleures destination sde ski familial en Amérique du Nord et a un des 5 meilleurs 'snowpark' au Québec.
