The Massif de Charlevoix offers, in addition to sliding sports, hiking trails including Le Lugeron trail. This crushed stone dust trail is fairly flat and without major obstacles. It stops at refuge 1 of the sled and reaches the the Gabrielle-Roy-Ouest trail from which the refuge Liguori is also accessible.
The trail goes into the forest on the plateau at the peak of the Massif de Charlevoix. Once arrived at refuge 1, it proposes a stunning view in the St. Lawrence River and Isle-aux-Coudres and constitutes the ideal location to pause for a snack or savour a picnic (restrooms and shelter are accessible).
From Québec City, follow Route 138 for approximately 62 km. The access road to the Massif summit is on the right hand side. Departure at the Chalet Sommet du Massif de Charlevoix. The trail begins behind the sliding school building. Parking at the Massif de Charlevoix.
The reception pavilion is only accessible in winter.
It is always important to get information from the trail manager before going hiking.
