Les Sentiers de l’Estrie developed at the start of the 1970s as the main artery of a long-hike corridor linking different Eastern Townships summits, which are part of the Appalachians, prolonging the Long Trail on the American side. This 200 km long network is at the heart of our mission.

Its backbone is a linear trail that runs for 156 km which crosses most of the Eastern Townships from south to north. It starts at the Quebec-US border near Sutton and ends in the Saint-François River valley at Kingsbury. It crosses the peaks of Mount Sutton, Écho, Singer, Glen, Gauvin, Foster, Chagnon, Orford, Chauve, des Trois-Lacs et Cathédrale (Carré). It then continues following the Golf glacial valley and the Saumon River valley.

A second network is located in the Stoke mounts north of Sherbrooke and has 28 trails that cross the summits of this picturesque massif. Many outlooks are accessible less than 4 km from the different parking lots. A third trail starts in the Marais Réal D. Carbonneau and goes to the chemin du Sanctuaire, offering 4.5 (linear) km of rustic walking trails in the heart of Sherbrooke. Also accessible via the Parc du Debonnair.

Expert hikers will appreciate the Sutton, Écho and Glen zone. Families and beginners will love to discover the Kingsbury and Stoke mounts
