There is a new multifunctional nature trail around Saint-François-Xavier’s lake.
The project combines nature conservation and recreational tourism. The main trail, with a length of 6 km and trail called the Orphans, offers visitors to experience the wetlands and wildlife species in the area. In addition, ten interpretive panels dotted along the route will make users aware of the challenges of environmental protection.
Both ends of the trail Orphans are connected to the Aerobic Corridor so as to form a loop route.
The project also includes a gazebo on top of a mountain and two footbridges on stilts providing the crossing of two forested peatlands.
From the Villas it is a beautiful 10 kilometers hike.
