Parc national du Mont-Mégantic

A protected site in the heart of the first International Dark Sky Reserve! Nestled in a crook of the Appalachians, a stone's throw from the New Hampshire border, Mount Megantic National Park is unbeatable for fans of short and long hiking expeditions. It offers 60 km of trails with differing levels around this imposing yet alluring massif. The trails reach three summits, all more than 1000 metres high: Mounts Megantic, Saint-Joseph and Victoria. Discover the Franceville sector and its trails. Lodging packages available year round (bed and breakfasts, inns, chalets, teepees, yurtes and camping).
