A family playground!

The Forêt ancienne sector of the Grandes-Coulées regional park will charm you with its 10 km of trails along the spectacular Noire river. Characterized by its flat terrain, the park offers you trails that are easily accessible for everyone. Guaranteed pleasure for all while snowshoeing!

Even your dog can be part of the fun as they are always welcome on leash. Mid-way through the trails, a shelter is available for snowshoers to simply take a break or to enjoy a well-deserved meal. In winter, the wood stove is very popular with hikers to warm up. Every day, from sunrise to sunset, access to the Forêt ancienne is free.
