Mount Orford: the fourth highest peak in Quebec

Located in the municipality of Orford, Quebec, Canada, Mount Orford is located west of Mount Giroux, east of Mount Sylvio-Lacharité and south of Mount Alfred-DesRochers. With its 853 meters of altitude, it is the highest skiable domain in the Eastern Townships. From Mount Orford flow four slopes including the Versant stream, the Des Chênes stream and the Giroux stream. Being the fourth highest peak in Quebec, Mount Orford is sheltered in the Parc national du Mont-Orford. With a surface area of 59.5 km2, take advantage of the park's many activities to relax in the heart of nature and why not spot white-tailed deer and great blue herons!

A must-see ski resort

When talking about Mount Orford, it is impossible not to mention cross-country skiing, which is the park's reputation. The park has a total of thirteen ski trails with 50 km of classic and 26 km of skate trails. Whether beginners or experts, each skier will find the trail that suits him or her thanks to the markings and tracings.

Hiking: an activity for the whole family

Hiking is undoubtedly the best way to contemplate the beauty of Parc national du Mont-Orford. It is the perfect opportunity to enjoy spectacular views of the Eastern Townships. With more than 80 km of trails, hiking is dedicated to the whole family for exceptional moments of discovery. You can hike the Sentiers de l'Estrie which crosses the park from north to south.

Other fun activities to enjoy...

In Mont-Orford Park, discovery activities can be done in groups. Between the Fraser Lake Sector and the Stukely Lake Sector, there is an embarrassment of riches to choose from. Those who like campfires can choose the Chouette soirée d'Orford to talk about owls. A night safari is also very tempting for sensory experiences on the trail without flashlights at night.

In short, Mount Orford and its national park are a paradise for those who want to have fun in a different way!
