Mont-Mégantic Lookout

The Mont-Mégantic lookout is located directly beneath the hybrid lift overlooking La Super trail. It’s the perfect place to enjoy breathtaking views of the towns of Orford and Magog, as well as the small Lake Magog and, if the sky is clear, you can spot Mont Mégantic in the distance.

Memphrémagog Lookout

The perfect spot for lunch or a snack on top of the mountain, the Memphrémagog lookout is one of our largest and is equipped with picnic tables for a well-deserved break. It’s located on a rocky cliff to the left of the hybrid lift and overlooks the 4 KM trail. When you look out into the distance, you can see the Appalachian Mountains in all their glory as well as the great Lake Memphrémagog in all its splendor.

Stukely Lookout

You can find this lookout at the very top of the mountain, built on rock at the right of the starting point for the Trois-Ruisseaux trail. It’s one of the smaller lookouts but it offers a magnificent view of Lake Stukely and the Mont-Orford National Park.

Bonsecours Lookout

Located to the right of the summit, you’ll find this stunning lookout after a five-minute walk on the Grande Coulée trail where you can marvel at the immensity of the National Park that stretches out in front of you, with the mythical Sommets des Crêtes trail and its rocky terrain. See if you can spot Bromont in the distance, rising up in the middle of the plain.

Circuit Altitude Lookout

This well-hidden lookout is one of Mont-Orford’s best-kept secrets and definitely worth the trip. It’s a raised wooden walkway, firmly anchored in rock, that provides access to a rocky cliff where it feels like you’re suspended in air. Its multiple lookout points offer an endless array of stunning views of the Appalachian Mountains, Owl’s Head Mountain, shining lakes, and a multitude of American mountains, such as Jay Peak. It truly is one of Mont-Orford’s must-see attractions.
