With a bird’s eye view of the interior of the massif, the Escarpements trail will please adventurers young and old, whatever the season.

The Escarpements trail boasts spectacular attractions: numerous cliffs, narrow rifts, overhanging rocks, imposing taluses, lush mosses and lichens, and dizzying lookouts. You’ll feel like real explorers during your adventure! An ideal hike for beginners, it runs along a beautiful river and is dotted with several rest stops. You can also admire Mont Mégantic and its observatory from there.

The surrounding mountains are even higher, which gives an unexpected character to the main lookout point on the route: a spectacular low-angle effect. With the Ruisseau-de-la-Montagne drainage basin at your feet, you’ll feel dizzy! It’s a walk filled with all kinds of emotions!
