Mount Hereford is a reference to a city and a county of the same name in England. A dictionary from 1832 refers to it as "Hereford Mountain." However, some locals refer to it as Montagne à Goyette or Montagne chez Goyette (translation: Goyette's Mountain).
It is possible to hike to the summit of Mount Hereford via the Neil Tillotson Hiking Trail, which is a 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) long linear trail. It is accessible from either Clowery Road in Saint-Herménégilde or Coaticook Road in East Hereford. Other activities permitted include snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and wildlife observation.
