A straightforward trail with moderate elevation which finishes at an old chapel

Adopt These Trails!

Overview

This one is available all year long and is well maintained in the winter. There is a parking lot half way up, but it's closed in the winter. Better to just start this one at the beach to make it longer.
Brings you to the top of a hill where an old chapel sits. From here you'll get a good view of the region.

Unfortunately, part of the trail goes over the road (for about 1 k) and has you crossing the main road.
Features: Fall Colors — Swimming
Dogs: No Dogs

Runner Notes

All good trails with no scrambling.

Description

From the beach parking lot, head north and run through the forest. Once you cross the main road a moderate climb starts and brings you to a plateau.

Head West for a couple of km where you'll start the real climbing until you hit a small chapel on the top of the hill.

From here you'll be rewarded with a nice place to sit and with an ok view (these aren't the Rockies after all ...).

History & Background

The Park is home to one of the largest heronries in Quebec and the historical site of Calvaire d'Oka (Calvary of Oka) shrine which dates from 1740.
