Etienne Trail


The Etienne Trail runs parallel to the Mattawa River.

Each of three separate loops highlights a theme of geology, history or nature. The terrain along the trail varies from rugged hills to abandoned logging roads. This path offers scenic views from the bluffs along the river as well as passing by Paresseux Falls.

There are original stands of white and red pine, large swamp forests and more than 200 species of birds. The Mattawa River is today protected as a waterway park along most of its 64-kilometre length.

Samuel de Champlain Provincial Park is a 2,550-hectare natural environment park along an eastern section of the river.
