This Quebec Fall Hike Gives You The Most Spectacular Views

It's time to start planning those leaf-peeping adventures because it appears fall foliage is arriving a bit early and we're just weeks away from the bare-tree greyness of the long winter season. At the top of our fall hikes list is Quebec's Mont-Orford.

The Estrie mountain, situated in a Quebec national park of the same name, features eight hiking trails, each offering an immersive adventure in the brilliant, fiery colours of the fall foliage.

From the park's multiple peaks, hikers can take in the great blanket of bright reds, oranges and yellows that covers the region's hills and valleys in the fall.

But you don't have to work too hard to yield some big rewards.

Sépaq describes the shortest and easiest hike, the 3.5-kilometre Étang-Fer-de-Lance, as "a pleasant walk in a maple forest [leading] to a superb panoramic view."

Those looking for a bit more difficulty might try the Mont-Chauve hike, a 10.6-kilometre intermediate-level loop that crosses the peak's summit.

Get all the details on visiting Mont-Orford below.
