The View from on High, at Parc National des Grands-Jardins

Large arrow left

In winter, when many parks are closed, you can find one gorgeous trail open here. From the Mont du Lac-des-Cygnes trailhead, make the snowy two-hour climb through a forest of white birch, spruce, and lichen-covered rocks. You’ll emerge to a view from the summit of the Charlevoix crater. —Jennifer Kahn
