Sentiers frontaliers

Sentiers frontaliers is a 135-km hiking trail network fully maintained by volunteers, linking the Chartierville and Woburn border crossings, passing by montagne de Marbre, mont Saddle and Mont Gosford. A trail also joins the Parc national du Mont-Mégantic. Visitors can enjoy short or long hikes. There are six campsites with platforms and 5 three-sided shelters. On some sections, wilderness shelters can accommodate you for the night. The network is connected to the Appalachian Trail by Cohos Trail in the United States. Be part of the "Expédition des braves randonneurs" in August. Thank you for encouraging Sentiers Frontaliers by making a donation to the organization or by becoming a member!
