Frontier Trail

frontier-trails-1Sentiers Frontaliers (translated to Frontier or Border Trail) is an 81 km main trail that hugs the Canada / US border (Quebec / Maine). There is a side trail that brings the total to 135 km – this leads to Mont Mégantic, home to a Québec provincial park which itself has a network of shorter trails.

The main trail follows the border closely, often using the actual border cut line, and eventually deviates to enter an ecological reserve and summits Mount Gosford in the Appalachian White Range.

In the south west, Frontier turns to meet the Cohos Trail of New Hampshire – another 265 km / 165 miles of path heading south through the US.
