 Documentation

Located in the heart of the first International Dark Sky Reserve, the Summit Drive is a 193-km circuit that connects the highest mountain peaks of southern Quebec from La Patrie to Saint-Adrien in the Eastern Townships where panoramic scenery is truly exceptional all along the way.

On The Summit Drive you will discover nature at its best. Endless mountain chains and several majestic lakes dominate the area's landscape.

Here doors are open for you to enjoy both cultural attractions and outdoor activities : hiking, cycling, swimming, beaches, aerial adventure courses, horseback riding, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, husky sleigh riding, snowmobiling, interpretation centers, etc...

Located at strategic points along the Summit Drive, information panels guide your adventure through the highest summits of southern Quebec!

Moreover, we find summit meeting panels along the Drive, which indicated geographic attributes and are becoming tourist emblems.
