Itinerary description

Show original
Take the assault on the ridges and accumulate the peaks of the Mont Orford massif. A beautiful mountain hike that will allow you to observe the variations of vegetation with altitude. Take the Natural Stone Staircase and reach the peak of La Roche-Fendue from where you will have a view of Lake Stukely. From there, cross the ridge in open ground up to the peak of the Bear where you will have a breathtaking 360 degree view of the region. Continue your hike to Mount Orford. The trail highlights some geological formations and forest layers and several points of view. The de facto departure from the Community Hall at 200, chemin du Camping, Orford and the arrival at Mont-Orford Tourist Station at 4380 Chemin du Parc, Orford.
