Love this little walk, so a great photo op. We had just enough time to explore the area before getting on the road again and loved the vibe down at the waterfront.

Stayed for 4 days in the Orford/Magog area for some R&R during late summer season. Lovely area with lots to see and do. Wine festival on weekends in early summer is a draw to the area as well. There are lots of wineries in the area that can be visited. I found the town much more tourist friendly than Sherbrooke... More

After dinner downtown, it's a pleasant walk along the river with the fall lighted with all different colors, once you found the stairs, make sure you do it at night, it's worth it!

The gorge is a lovely experience in the heart of Sherbrooke and walking distance to many good restaurants. Parking available, Rue Meadow, off Wellington!

Wonderful view of the Lawrence River, the surrounding area is very picturesque. Well worth the drive to view this area and have a walk around.

I wish that my camera hadn't gone on the fritz because this is a lovely spot for one to take great photographs. Some of the trails are a bit rough so I'd recommend bringing comfortable shoes and a walking stick.

It is the second time we visit Sherbrooke and walking around lac des nations. One of some places of Magog river. Beautiful walking to do with all family. The accesses are very good and with great views.

I went to this place twice. Once in the day and once after it was dark. The day time was beautiful and night time was quite a view too! There are color changing lights and the walk is pretty too! 3 dams. Nice for winter walk too!

We really enjoyed our visit to the gorge. There are walking trails along the river and a bridge where you can cross over top of the dam. Great place to take pictures.
