Mount Pinacle (French: Le Pinacle) is a mountain located in Coaticook, Quebec Canada. There are 7.8 kilometres (4.8 mi) of trails on the mountain, which hikers may use free of charge. Experienced rock climbers may scale the face of the hill starting from Lake Lyster. The mountain is exploited for its abundance of maples, with a sugar bush running along a portion of its trails.
The hill has been officially known as Le Pinacle since 1978.
In June 2014, a 10-year-old child on a field trip went to the emergency department after surviving a 10-metre fall down a crevice on the mountain. Approximately a dozen firefighters were onsite for two hours rescuing the child, although he was not gravely injured.
