The trail (including the shelters Orignal and Philosore) is now closed and should reopen by the 1st of July, 2017.
The Philosore truly represents the most authentic natural immersion in Vallée Bras-du-Nord’s trail network. This pathway into the wild opens the doors to a serene state of mind, and bring back thoughts of times on the frontier.

In winter, several factors can influence your progression. Sometimes it can be difficult to accurately predict the rate of progression. On average, the increase will be about 2 or 3 km/h. However, after a heavy snowfall, your progress could be as low as 0.5 km/h!.
To cross this trail in the winter, we suggest our "Crossing the Philosore" package, that includes access rights, two nights in a shelter (Philosore and L’Orignal) and shuttle service as well. (Access to Accueil Mauvaise requires a 4X4 vehicle in winter time)
