Park Experience

A Hill on the Plain

A representative element of the natural region of the Montérégian hills, Parc national du Mont-Saint-Bruno has five lakes, an orchard, a historical mill and dozens of kilometres of trails winding through the hardwood forest. Some 20 bird species and about 40 mammal species share this little corner of paradise. Like other hills in Montérégie, Mont Saint-Bruno is a protected forest habitat in the urbanized landscapes of the Greater Montréal region. Summer and winter alike, visitors can take advantage of the fresh air in this oasis of peace just a few kilometres from the metropolitan area.

Discover the Park Through Interpretation

Parc national du Mont-Saint-Bruno has the potential to inspire wonder! And the best way is to participate in our discovery activities (in French only).Through the interpretation of natural and cultural heritage, you’ll learn more about the park and the importance of protecting it.

Among the riches we wish to share are:

  • The birth of a Montérégian hill
  • Exceptional vegetation
  • A unique sanctuary for wildlife
  • The history of aristocratic vacationing and the Brothers of Saint-Gabriel

To guide us in developing our discovery activities, all the parks have an education plan.

Un quai vous attend au lac des Bouleaux
A pier awaits you at Lac des Bouleaux

The 8.8-km Des Lacs trail offers a very interesting walk. Under the shade of oaks, maples and 200 year-old beech trees, you’ll enjoy a trail that’s easy to walk and stroller-friendly.

With a little luck, you’ll see a white-tailed deer, a Pileated Woodpecker (the park’s bird emblem) and, why not, a Belted Kingfisher. The trail also features several lookouts and piers. If you want to relax and enjoy the present moment, plan to bring a snack on your next hike and explore Des Lacs trail at your own pace.
