Hiking is definitely the best way to discover Parc national du Mont-Orford. It's the perfect way to get access to numerous viewpoints, which are said to be among the most spectacular of the Eastern Townships region. In the fall, the forest presents a show featuring the flamboyant colours of the sugar maples. The park is notably home to white-tailed deer and Great Blue Heron, which you can observe in their natural habitat. There is also a large variety of amphibian and reptile species. Beside two beaches, vacationers have a wide range of fun-filled activities to choose from. Come fall, colourful sugar maples treat hikers to a blazing show. Come winter, the park is a destination of choice for cross country skiing and snowshoeing fans.
New this winter, access to the cross country skiing trails is free for customers staying at Sépaq-network cross country skiing centres. Present your booking confirmation at check-in to get your ski tickets.
Starting December 2, 2014, you can book your backpacking stay with hut accommodation for winter 2015-2016. Call 1 800 665-6527 to take advantage of first choice availabilities and reserve your spot.

August 1, 2014 - Thanks to the collaboration of users of the Pic aux Corbeaux sector since its closure, the Peregrine Falcon pair had a successful nesting period. Two baby falcons have just taken wing and flown the nest and the Pic aux Corbeaux sector has reopened. Hikers and climbers can resume their activities.
We would also like to take this opportunity to inform you that the trail leading to the cliff has been redone over the past few weeks. It now takes a new route to officialise the rock climbing activity. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding!
