Suggested Hikes

A Short Hike

Around an hour

The Val-Sutton Loop

With two short river crossings, followed by a simple acrobatic climb up boulders bordering the falls, is a children`s favorite. Please note this route becomes impassable during periods of flood (snowmelt or rainstorm). It is also not recomended if you are not used to irregular walking surfaces.

Boucle du Vieux Chemin

Unless the creeks are flooded (in which case this circuit becomes impassable), it is one of the easiest loops of the nature park`s network ... Between the gentle descent into the maple sugar bush, the big erratic block that plays sentry on the edge of the brook and a Vieux-Chemin (the old road) rich in history, this hike is recommended for those looking to submerse themselves in nature away from the crowds ...

A medium hike

Around two hours

Boucle des lacs

A classic for first time visitors, because of its relative ease and the charm of the lake. A superb view of Montérégie was opened last year midway along the Spruce Lake Trail, adding to the fun. Very frequented during peak periods. The Mud Pond loop is an interesting alternative if you are looking for a quieter hike.

Mud Pond Loop

When you leave the Spruce Lake Trail to join the Vieux Chemin Trail, the Mud Pond Loop gives you access to one of the quietest areas of the network. Perfect for contemplating nature.

Half day

Around 3 hours

The Dos d’Orignal Loop

From the summit of des Hollandais to the natural lookout of 'Échine, the ridge of the Dos d'Orignal offers views that rival the Round Top trail (without the hiker traffic). Be prepared for a steep climb and descent, in trails that have not recently been restored. During periods of snowmelt and heavy rain this loop becomes impassable.

Lac Spruce and Round Top

A classic hike popular with everyone and without reason. Beautiful view of the lake and a wonderful vista at Round Top.

A Serious Hike

More than four hours

The Great Lake Tour

This hike can keep you busy all day if you bring a picnic for at the top, and take the time to appreciate all the beauties the circuit offers ... which is not within everyone`s reach.

The Total

The Loop of Ridges

Once past the multiple lookout points of the Dos d'Orignal trail, you will reach an area where several century old birch trees are perched on erratic blocks crowed with ferns. This area is one of the oldest sections of the Estrie trail network. This demanding hike is worth the trip.
