Although the mountain stands at only 218 metres (715 ft), the conditions on the summit are a bit harsher than at the bottom, which in consequence causes altitudinal zonation.As the altitude increases, the vegetation passes from sugar maple, bitternut hickory at the base, to northern red oak, sugar maple on the summit.
The mountain gets 1,014 millimetres (39.9 in) of precipitation, of which 239 centimetres (94 in) is snowfall.
Despite its relatively small size, the mountain is known for its rich fauna and flora.
Situated at the heart of the old signory of Montarville , its many lakes have permitted the construction and exploitation of many water mills, contributing to the region's economical success.
It established a park in 1985 that, since 1999, is managed by the Société des établissements de plein air du Québec (SÉPAQ).
The park sees approximately 750,000 visitors yearly, where hiking, cross-country skiing and alpine skiing are amongst the most popular activities enjoyed.
