For beginning snowshoers

Would you like to introduce your children to snowshoeing? Or would you like to ease into the season when you first hit the trail? If so, the Du Camping trail is the ideal choice. Featuring two courses (3.1 or 4.5 km), this flat trail enables users to enjoy the great outdoors but also provides a heated shelter for a welcome break along the way. It’s the perfect place for breaking into this sport!

And now for a real challenge!

Children and parents with energy to burn will like the Lac-Solitaire trail, which offers 5.5 km. of snowshoeing or Nordic walking adventure. The trail begins with a few kilometres of ascent, and some of the steeper descents require using ropes. It all adds up to some serious fun for the more active snowshoers. Be sure to bring along your crampons! The spectacular panoramas afforded by this trail are well worth the effort!
