Hiking to the most beautiful mountaintops
Fall is a paradise for hikers. With a choice of trails as impressive as this, you’re bound to find the one for you. From easy-peasy to difficult, for little legs and long ones, these trails will lead you to amazing places. Here are some of the most beautiful hikes in the Parc National du Mont-Tremblant.
Unquestionably one of the park’s most popular trails. If you haven’t done it yet, don’t wait for November! This 8-km loop takes you to two lookouts from which the Diable and Lac Monroe valleys can be seen in all their splendour. Breathtaking, particularly during the season of colours.
A real gem created for the park’s 100th birthday. This trail, which is quite wild, runs across a large area featuring rocks and deciduous trees. The succession of viewpoints is spectacular, particularly for viewing the sinuous path of the Diable River.
The first kilometres feature lots of roots and small streams. With its hushed ambience, the natural beauty of the Ruisseau des Pruches (stream) is incomparable. The climb will become rockier and harder, but you’ll reach the top of the highest summit in the Laurentians: the Pic Johannsen, at 931 metres.
In La Pimbina sector (Saint-Donat entrance), you’ll travel through a forest of yellow birch typical of the park. The trail, classed as easy, takes you to the summit – with its remarkable view of Lac Provost and Lac Lajoie – in about an hour of walking.
The name says it all: this trail leads you right to a compelling view of valleys free of human activity. All along its 4.6 km, a mature maple forest takes you to a small lookout, from which you’ll observe mountains as far as the eye can see. It’s a little gem in L’Assomption sector (Saint-Côme entrance).
