Overview

Parc d'Environnement Naturel de Sutton offers an 84 km network of hiking trails over three summits and including the Mont-Sutton alpine ski trails. A lot of the park's trails are challenging, but there are also some intermediate and easy ones.

The trails form a section of Les Sentiers de l'Estrie, a hiking trail that runs 150 km (90 miles) from the Vermont border near Sutton to Kingsbury. Les Sentiers de l'Estrie also connects several peaks over 2,000 feet in elevation, including Mount Sutton, Réserve naturelle des Montagnes-Vertes and Mount Orford.

The network of trails can be used year round, but is especially beautiful in the fall and winter (snowshoes very useful).

There is a scenic view to the south and east from the summit of Round Top (968m). Also viewpoints from Dos d'Orignal trail and Lac Mohawk. Water and rock formation at Marmite aux Sorcieres.
