Our 3 favorite fall hikes

Outdoor lovers will confirm: hiking is easy to do all year round if you are well equipped. Each season has its own beauty and activities. However, we don't know about you, but fall makes us want to abandon the big city and run along the trails dotted with red and orange leaves. The air is fresh, the leaves crunch under our feet and at the end of a long hike we can treat ourselves to a delicious hot chocolate or even a pumpkin latte on the way back.

Three members of our team who are fond of fall hikes offer you here their favorite mountains, located near the metropolis to fully and easily enjoy this captivating ephemeral setting.

1. Marisa’s choice -> Mont Saint-Hilaire

A classic, but for good reason, the view at the top is breathtaking, and this photo definitely doesn't do it justice. Less than an hour from Montreal, it is easily accessible and this region is full of many other fall activities, such as several orchards.

2. Choice of Luce -> Mont Sutton

Sutton is best known for its ski slopes, but have you ever tried their hiking trails? Otherwise, we recommend taking a look. They have free and paid trails and several activities such as guided hikes, night hikes and trail cleaning events. In short, no reason to be bored!

3. Charlène’s choice -> Mont Orford

Another of our favorite hikes is none other than Mont-Orford. The magnificent landscapes are sure to amaze you. Then if you want to go further than hiking, the area has plenty to offer such as golf courses or village walks.

And a little bonus, for those who want to venture further...

-> Mont-Mégantic National Park

This SÉPAQ park is a short walk from Montreal, but the view and experience are worth it. This is a perfect hike for anyone who has already done all the beginner hikes around the metropolis and wants a challenge!
