Mer Bleue Trail

The Mer Bleue Trail is the shortest trail in the Mer Bleue Conservation Area. There are two main reasons, however, why it should not be undervalued. The first is the fact that it is connected to Trail 53/53A (see the database), and the second is that it’s home to fascinating bog land that it has been internationally recognized by the Ramsar Convention.



The Ramsar Convention has the goal of preserving wetlands such as these so that future generations will have the opportunity to enjoy its magnificence. As a result you can enjoy this natural habitat over this tranquil 1.2 km self-guided interpretation trail. Blue squares with the trail number on them will help you identify the trail.
