There's a summit not far too from Quebec that presents a real challenge for people who love hiking in high places. Just over two hours from Montreal, you can find Whiteface Mountain, which has an elevation of over 1,400 metres. Now succeeding in a hike that high up will be something to brag to your friends about.\nThis mountain, found in the state of New York, offers an exceptional 360-degree view of the surrounding mountains and lakes as well as the cities further away.\nYou can even see a few Montreal skyscrapers in the distance.\nThis is one of the largest mountains in the Adirondacks of the United States. It takes about eight hours to complete the trip up and the round trip distance is 16.8 kilometres.\nOnce parked on-site, simply follow the signs to the Wilmington Trail. You can then follow the directions to the top of Whiteface.\nAs this is a difficult climb, it's important to do it at your own pace. Especially since there are some challenging movements to do in some spots.\nBut no need to worry, there are also easier trails around such.\nIf you want to check out the view, but don't have eight hours to make this climb, rest assured that you can also drive to the top.\nView this post on Instagram Great experience being at the top of Whiteface Mountain, the fifth highest peak in New York state.
