Why choose a trail at Mont Chauve?

Located near Orford, on the border of Mont-Orford National Park in the Eastern Townships region, Mont-Chauve, part of the Sutton Mountains, rises to an altitude of nearly 600 meters and its trails are among the most traveled in Quebec!

The mountain offers 3 trails: the Mont-Chauve trail, a loop trail with a length of 10.6km of hiking, has an estimated duration of 4h. Intermediate in level, the trail will suit families and the less seasoned. The David Creek trail, which runs alongside the latter, is 15.6km long and is also of intermediate difficulty. Finally, the Etang aux Cerises trail, 16.4km, requires climbing some rocks and its difficulty will appeal to hikers looking for a challenge.

These trails are very well marked, not very difficult, accessible to dogs, and allow you to enjoy a gain in altitude
