Sentier des Escarpements

Parc national du Mont-Mégantic

This hiking trail offers spectacular attractions: cliffs, narrow faults, overhanging rocks, giant boulders, luxuriant moss and lichens, breathtaking views. The vicinity of the most imposing mountains gives an unexpected view of the trail: a spectacular high angle-view. Admire the huge mountainsides and the stunning view of the valley of the Ruisseau de la Montagne - mountain stream - of which the trail is interrupted by waterfalls. In addition, the view being oriented within the park’s territory, the mountainous nature of this protected area is all the more noticeable!
