Mont Tremblant National Park is a true haven of peace located  in the heart of the Laurentian region, about 140km  from the city of Montreal. This wonderful place takes  its name from Mont Tremblant  and is the oldest natural park in Quebec; indeed it was created in 1895 and this year it celebrated its 125th anniversary.

The park has a very large territory  that stretches over 1510 km2,with six large rivers, mountains and 400 lakes. Thisseason thousands of tourists  comehere to admire the beauty of its huge forestsat a loss of eye and to  be  enchanted by the colors ofthe feuillage during the autumn.

Just because of its vastness,a single day is not enough to visit Mount Tremblan t National Park. Itsrritory is divided  between three different sectors,all toexplore:

·         Devil'sArea, which is dominated byMount Tremblant and where most of the hiking trails are concentrated

·         Area of the Pimbina, which is wilder and preses into the Rat Falls, a 17m waterfall

·         Assumption Area, recommended especially for more expert hikers, where you can go  wild camping

Itis  mainly  the sports activitiesto attract visitors to the  park. Indeed ihere, in winter as in summer, there is always some chdare todo!

In particular, for thisux  who like to walk there are  82km of hiking trails,as wellas10community refugees to spend the night.

A recommended trail

If this is thefirst timeyou comehere and you want to walk a fairly easy trail, but which  offers  a superb panorama,you can choose the one of La Corniche. This course  takes place almost entirely in the woodsand it isuphill (moderatedanyway!).

As far as length is concerned, this is a 3.4km  (round trip) path with intermediate difficulty. However, families with children can also enjoy it, since the trail iswellorganized  and thereare no features too steep. You could say  it'sthe perfectroute to introduce kids to hiking!

In addition, La Corniche is the shortest trail in the Devil's area and is well known for its highest point, a superb lookout located at 135m above sea level,from where you can have a magnificent view of the two lakes, Little Monroe and Monroe Lake, with their  bends and small beaches.

The starting point of the trail is the Corniche Parking,which is 1.7km fromthe Park DiscoveryCentre. Once you arrive at the parking lot it is enough to follow the directions that lead you to the trail.

Finally, if you prefer to hike longer, the Corniche forms a loop with two other trails,  the Rock and the Stream,for a total  of 8.2km.
