Coureur de Bois Trail


This self-guided nature trail explores a landscape marked by glacial remnants, beaver ponds, hardwood hills and fern swamps.

Plaques interpret natural history along the way. This park is opposite the once furious Long Sault rapids around which voyageurs portaged on their way up the Ottawa River.

The Carillon dam raised water levels and created a shoreline of marshes and inlets full of birds and wildlife.

Explore on foot, by canoe or, in winter, on skis. Educational programs are in French and English.
