Last week, I had the opportunity to do a little hiking in the eastern townships. Conditions were wet and muddy, but manageable. The temperature was in the low to mid teens Celsius. Which is very comfortable for hiking. Trail map: Franceville sector.
Sentier des Escarpments is an intermediate trail and very well maintained. Sépaq personnel were adjusting one of the more challenging sections of the trail the day we were there.
If you are new to hiking in early June, you will see some bears. Educate yourself about the proper interaction with bears in this season.
The hiking paths are wide and well groomed for the most part. Some areas require more concentration on foot placement, but a very enjoyable climb nonetheless.
