Winter Hiking and Snowshoeing

Mont Orford National Park

Located only 2.5 km from the chalets, the park has many trails to offer for all technical levels. A park entry fee is required to access the snowshoe trails.  Both a park map and table of trails are available online.

Due to COVID, daily park passes are required to be purchased online.  Even with a valid pass, it is recommended that you arrive early at the park because access could be denied if the parking lot is full or maximum capacity is reached.

Snowshoes can be rented at the park and must be reserved at last 24-hours in advance by calling 1-800-665-6527.  Click here to see rental prices.

Please note that dog access is limited during winter due to the trails transition to cross-country ski trails.  The dog-friendly trails are only accessible from the Lake Frasier entrance or the Le Ruisseau-des-Chênes near Eastman.

These are a few of the local favorites.
