Hiking is without a doubt the best way to discover Parc national du Mont-Orford. It is the perfect opportunity to access many of the most spectacular views in the Eastern Townships. The park is home to white-tailed deer and great blue herons, which can be seen in their natural habitat. It also has a wide variety of amphibian and reptile species. The two beaches offer a variety of activities for the enjoyment of vacationers. In winter, the park becomes a must for cross-country skiing and snowshoeing enthusiasts.
