Known for its two-peak summit and with an altitude of 713 metres, Mont-Ham dominates the region and offers a breathtaking 360° view.

Adventurers young and old will love taking on the challenge of the Intrépide trail, where a roped section will help you climb the impressive summit.

Do you love taking selfies? Take one with the “Rencontre au Sommet” sign to prove your ascent! From the rocky summit, you’ll have an unobstructed view of this magnificent region, which mixes forested and agricultural landscapes. You’ll love it, guaranteed!

Are you up for more than just a hike? Why not sleep on the mountaintop? You can do that here! Enjoy an unforgettable mountaintop camping experience (by reservation), where the sunset and sunrise will enchant you.

Indigenous Immersion

Located on Abenaki ancestral lands, Ndakina, the Trail of Legends on Mont-Ham, is a real immersion in Indigenous culture. All along the Waban-Aki discovery trail, which is also accessible to those with reduced mobility, look for the masks hidden in the mountain that recall the legend of the Invisible People. Interpretive panels located at the foot and summit of the mountain explain the Abenaki culture and this ancestral territory. It’s a trip back in time to remind us that the ground we tread on today has been home to innumerable peoples for millennia, and that it’s our duty to take care of it.

A statue at the summit of the mountain called “Awdowinno,” meaning “warrior” in the Abenaki language, bears witness to this. Who knows, perhaps you’ll feel the warrior spirit awake in you after you reach the summit? Keep your eye open for tepees, which can become your lodgings for a few nights.

Open 7 days a week
