The Massif de Charlevoix offers, in addition to sliding sports, hiking trails, including the Lugeron trail. Until now, four trails have been created on the territory of the Massif, offering many views of the river and the surrounding mountains. The trails also make it possible to join the Charlevoix Cap Trail network, a long-distance hiking trail linking the Cap Tourmente National Wildlife Area to the municipality of Petite-Rivière-Saint-François, as well as the Gabrielle-Roy- West, section of the National Trail.
