The entire trail takes approximately one hour to finish.

The story of the sleeping giant is listed on the event website as follows:
"Legend has it that a sleeping giant calls Mont Tremblant home. The last survivor of his kind, this mythical being is the ancestral protector of the fauna, the flora and the rivers. For thousands of years, his great wisdom was so revered and sought after that his descendants would return to Mont Tremblant from far and wide every time he awoke from his slumber.
The giant’s legendary wrath has inspired fear since ancient times. Even today, if anyone disobeys the sacred laws of nature, the power of his fury makes the mountainside tremble."
"A guardian of the forces of nature, the giant hasn’t risen from his slumber in many years. But with the first rays of summer, his whispers were heard, and a trail of glowing hand and footprints were discovered deep in the Mont Tremblant forest. The spirits of the forgotten people, who had vanished long ago, suddenly emerged from the darkness to watch over the travellers that venture into the woodlands.
After all of this time, the giant has awoken so that you, too, will find your way to him."
