Hiking

HIKING TRAILS TRAVERSING A MIXED FOREST

All roads (or in this case, trails) lead to the summit, which has a 540-metre average elevation. Little frequented, the mountain offers a vigorous hike in nature with, as its final reward, the view of lake Memphremagog and Vermont. Leashed dogs are permitted.

Breathtaking view at the summit

Everyone agrees: the view from the summit of our mountain will take your breath away! Admire the panoramic vista of the lake below and the surrounding mountains of Jay Peak, Éléphant and Orford. Hikers have the choice of 2.8 km, 3.5 km or 5 km loops. Along the way, you could spot birds of prey here and there, such as turkey vultures and eagles, as well as all sorts of other wildlife.

A 150-year-old historic trail

Many decades ago, the Abenaki peoples used this trail to reach the summit of Owl’s Head. The Freemasons also took virtually the same route to get to their mountaintop lodge. The Abénakis-Maçonnique trail pays tribute to our history as it winds through the forested mountainside. The trailhead is located by the ski lodge at the base of the slopes. The terrain can be steep in spots and, after rain, very slippery.
