The Long-Distance Trek

DAY 1

Start your journey at the Parc régional du Mont-Ham in Ham-Sud in the Des Sources region. Take a few hours to hike up to summit of this 713-metre mountain, admire the magnificent landscape, and trek back down. In the afternoon, you are encouraged to stay in the park and try a little disc golf. Based on the rules of golf, the game consists of throwing a frisbee at a target.

Enjoy a relaxing end to your day at the Auberge Restaurant La Mara, a country inn in Ham-Sud certified for its hikers welcome (Bienvenue randonneurs) and its organic local cuisine. You’ll love the delicious meals served in the inn’s restaurant and enjoy a good night’s sleep. You’ll need it—a full day of activities awaits.

DAY 2

After a great breakfast, drive along the Summit Drive and take time to marvel at the fabulous chain of mountains along the way to Parc national de Frontenac in Lambton. Your adventure will continue here as you glide along the park’s waterways in a canoe or kayak. After your excursion on the water, set up your tent at one of the many campsites beside the lake. Or try the Huttopia experience, sleeping in a ready-to-camp tent!

DAY 3

Repack your bags and return to the Summit Drive to head to your next destination: the hiking trails Sentiers du Mont-Bélanger in Saint-Robert-Bellarmin very near the United States border at Maine. On your way, stop at Érable à son meilleur, a maple interpretation centre in Lac-Drolet, where you can buy something from a vast selection of maple products. Why not try a maple-based alcoholic drink that will slip neatly into your backpack?

 

After exploring the interpretation centre, the boutique, and the sugar bush’s educational trails, hit the road again in the direction of the hiking trails at Mount Bélanger, a 920-metre mountain with 18 kilometres of walking trails. After hiking the mountain, prepare for your last night by pitching your tent on one of the platforms located 20 minutes from the summit. Once settled, find that new bottle in your backpack and enjoy!
