If you are visiting Mont Tremblant National Park, head for this easy trail. It is about 3km long, loop-shaped and a relaxed walk. Located near Monroe Lake, we were able to spot few animals – two deer, birds and a beaver swimming in the water.
During an autumn weekend, we arrived for a one night stay in Mont-Tremblant while knowing that cable cars were closed as the winter season was just about to start. We were lucky with the weather as there was no snow and temperatures were just above zero Celsius. We looked for an easy walk to do and we found this great walk. We drove north around 40 minutes from Mont-Tremblant village towards Monroe Lake.
Address: Unfortunately there is no specific address on any website but Waze and Google Maps were able to find it easily (Lac Monroe visitor centre)Region: LaurentidesCar: The drive is about 2 hours drive from Montreal, or 40 minutes from Mont Tremblant village.We parked at the Lac Monroe Visitor Centre which was closed for the seasonParking was free at the time of our visitFees: Sepaq fees (depends on season)Duration of the walk is 3.1km, it is a loop trail and is considered ‘easy’ by the SEPAQ website. Although we did not use our stroller this time, I think that the walk is possible to do with an all-terrain stroller.
In order to arrive at the starting point of the trail, head towards the main road from the parking, cross the road at the crossing next to the three totems and you will see the main sign of the trail with a small map.
The walk was easy, with a slight climb in the beginning but my young kids did it easily. The trail has few waterfalls to see, small streams and the thing which surprised us the most was the number of fallen trees in the area. Lac des femmes is very small.
