Around Pohénégamook Lake

Visitors can join this 15.5 miles trail from various locations: Frontière Park, Pohénégamook Outdoor Recreation and Health Spa or Pohénégamook Beach. Part of the circuit (4.5 miles) is on the Route des Frontières and crosses the communities of Saint-Éleuthère and Estcourt. We recommend two spectacular lookouts: one at the foot of the lake, near the Ponik sculpture, and the other in Frontière Park where you’ll read about the monster supposedly living in the lake. After the Pohénégamook Health Spa, the circuit turns into gravel and is surrounded by nature. The path then leads to the mouth of the lake and the beach. Beat summer heat by cooling off in the Pohénégamook Lake and then relax on the beach.
