De l’Orignac Trail


Wild nature characterizes this trail. It crisscrosses through numerous ecosystems, from a maple grove to the tundra.


The L’Orignac-Ouest trail begins at the junction of La Traversée de Charlevoix and Mont Grand-Fonds trails. It extends off to the east to Lake McLeod, where the L’Orignac-Centre trail starts. Continuing eastward, it progresses to a plantation of jack pines and climbs up towards viewpoints of which a particularly striking one is found at kilometer 4. Mont Grand-Fonds, the Noire river valley and Les Palissades can be seen. A bit further, it meets with the Petit Lac Noir. From there, admire the St. Lawrence River and the valley of a geological fault, Les Palissades. This portion of the trail goes through the Camp Arthur-Savard and leads to the municipality of Saint-Siméon.
