better by bicycle than by foot

Great trail, great views!

First time serious hiking, great introduction.

We started at Parent beach and headed south on the south west side of the lake. It was lovely and quiet once we moved away from the lake. As we rounded the end of the lake and started the north east side, the path was much more over grown and we quickly turned around because of poison ivy. We do not know how far the poison ivy went. We returned​ on the south east side close to the lake where there were many more people.

Lovely hike! My 12 year-old son plowed through it!

An interesting wetland trail on the Ottawa side of the Ottawa River. Very flat. There are occasional nature walk here (like learning about medicinal plants in the marsh) and when we hiked (in early July) we saw lots of turtles, and a pair of beautiful pileated woodpeckers plus other birds. There is a large and popular beach nearby but the water quality in this area is occasionally suspect as its downstream from Ottawa. I prefer the nature trails, which were quite peaceful when we went. One negative may be that you have to pay for parking unless you find parking outside the park (which I did)

Le mont Orford est situé à l'ouest du mont Giroux, à l'est du mont Sylvio-Lacharité et au sud du mont Alfred-DesRochers, qui l'entourent tous les trois. Il est au nord-est du lac Orford, qui se trouve juste à ses pieds. Du mont Orford s'écoulent trois ruisseaux : ruisseau du Versant, ruisseau Des Chênes, ruisseau Giroux et un autre dont on ne voit pas de nom sur la carte du mont Orford. Le ruisseau du Versant s'écoule vers le sud. Entre le mont Orford et le mont Sylvio-Lacharité s'écoule le ruisseau Des Chênes qui s'écoule en direction sud-ouest. Deux autres ruisseaux s'écoulent entre les monts Orford et Giroux : le ruisseau Sinueux qui s'écoule vers le sud-est et le ruisseau Giroux qui s'écoule vers le nord-est. Un autre petit cours d'eau s'écoule entre le mont Orford et le mont Alfred-DesRochers. La route des Diligences contourne le mont Orford par le sud par un chemin tout en contournant le lac Orford à la fois de l'autre côté.

les sentier sont tres bien balisé et entretenu car c'est une SEPAQ. ca vaut le cout de prendre une passe annuel puisque plusieurs autres sommets sont situé dans des sepaq aussi.

Bonne randonnée
