Nammed in the honor of explorer geologist James Richardson of the Canadians geological commission, Richardson is located in Gaspésie national park in the Mc Gerrigle mountains. The trail leading to its summit is steep 11,5km/gain 705 m or 6hrs approx. You will start by going up to mount Joseph Fortin and descend a col to a Nice lake and up again to Richardson.The last section going up is in a nice alpin toundra type vegetation. Check with park authorities because some trails in the park close for caribou reproduction.
The Chic Chocs are the northern extension of the Appalachian Mountains and contain over 25 peaks 1000m or more. They are known for their steep ridges and broad flat summit plateaus. The summits of all of the higher peaks are bereft of trees, containing only tundra type vegetation .
