The scenery is breathtaking. I didn't go all the way to the top, I would have but was with the little ones. From what I saw the mountain bike trails are top notch. Many trails and little jumps, not sure if there are bigger ones.

Really nice area. Trails are well maintained but sometimes too many exposed roots and rocks for worry free hiking for beginners

Discover the Eastern Townships

Mont Brome is part of the Eastern Townships region, also known as the Eastern Townships, and in particular the Township of Brome-Missisquoi. The region is located in southeastern Quebec and shares the border with the United States for approximately 300km.

The Eastern Townships are considered a true natural painting because of its wonderful landscapes where mountains follow one another in hills and valleys. The forests too, which cover almost 80% of the territory, are an incredible sight, especially when there are the colors of autumn.

Here there are also four national parks. In particular, the Mont-Mégantic National Park is known for its scientific observatory where you can admire the starry sky.

Because of its natural spaces this region is considered one of the most famous tourist destinations for those who love outdoor life. In fact, here you can do sports in all seasons, choosing among mountain biking, hiking, skiing...

The small villages of the Eastern Townships are also very picturesque to see: the architectural style of the buildings is very much affected by the Anglo-Saxon heritage and it seems that time has stood still here.

The Eastern Townships invite tourists to enjoy the friendly atmosphere of its many small restaurants and cafés, where you can try the gastronomic specialties of the region.

And if you still need a reason to visit the Eastern Townships, think of its two wine routes with 30 vineyards, which make this region an interesting destination for all those who would like to spend a stay under the sign of good regional products and gourmet food.
