The Pain de Sucre summit from the ground The Pain de Sucre summit in winter
Although just a little higher than the mountain’s four other summits, Pain de Sucre manages to top them by some 10 metres. In 1842, a gigantic cross was built on this butte and drew pilgrims from near and far. Today, the summit serves as a great lookout for admiring the region, the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, and the Adirondack Mountains in New York. The peak sports red oak and even some tiger lilies, relics of the pilgrimages of years gone by. The summit’s name may come from the maple sugar that was produced in great quantities on the mountain 150 years ago.
