The Sentier Des Escarpements Trail—Parc national du Mont-Mégantic, Franceville Sector
Heading out from the Franceville service sector, you start by following the Promenade du Ruisseau. Running along a narrow waterway, this rather level trail leads to the Sentier des Escarpements. Here you’ll find the official trailhead for this moderate uphill path that will take you, first across a deciduous forest, then along a rocky cliff through some very tall evergreens. When you reach the top, you’ll find an impressive view overlooking the park interior and its valley. In the fall, you’ll discover a vast patchwork of colours spreading out below your feet! You’ll also be able to spot the summits of Mount Megantic and its observatory far off in the distance. The hike totals 6.7 km with an elevation of 180 m really worth the effort!
