Mount Martin

Mount Martin is about 300 metres high. The 5 km hiking trail up and down Mount Martin in Quebec, close to Ontario, across from Deep River, offers fabulous birds-eye views over the Laurentian Hills, the Ottawa River and Valley.

The steep rocky trail winds its way through the canopy of a mixed forest with large white pines to the top of Mount Martin. In winter, the Mount Martin Ski Club – MMSC, in place since 1946, maintains 12 runs including a glade run and terrain park (with jumps, rails and boxes), a T-bar and rope tow, right in the Town of Deep River.

Most trails are groomed. The hill normally opens mid-December (snow permitting).

All runs are patrolled by volunteers from the Canadian Ski Patrol. A heated chalet with snack bar offers skiers a place to socialize and warm up whether enjoying the hill during the day or night skiing.

Mount Martin Ski Club phone: 613-584-2809 will give you up-to-date information on the hill conditions and opening times. In summer, canoe can be launched from Deep Rive to cross the Ottawa River to reach a beautiful sandy shore, in an uninhabited area, where the trail head is located.
