Money Point Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Money Point received its name after a ship carrying the pay for the garrison in Quebec was lost nearby. Since then, supposedly, gold and silver coins are still occasionally found in the surrounding sand and rocks.

Today only an automated light beacon warns shipping of Money Point’s hazards, but the former lighthouse can still be found at the Canada Museum of Science and Technology in Ottawa, where it was moved in 1980."

My husband and I hiked Money Point on the September long weekend in 2015. It was one of my fave hikes. We hiked up the hill through the woods and the path going down to the coast was so steep, when we got down the hill, the scenery was breathtaking and there were horses grazing on the fields. climbing back up the hill was another story, I took quite a few breaks. The whole hike took us 6 1/2 hours, but it was amazing. We would definitely do it again.
