Parks Canada shares the public's interest in the Lachine Canal during the winter season and works with its partners to promote recreational activities at this exceptional site located in the heart of Montreal.

Winter Trail

On the south side, from Island Street to lock 4, a winter trail offers a unique opportunity to discover the natural beauty of the Lachine Canal when it is adorned in its white coat.

Again this year, a 2.7 km portion of the Lachine Canal trail will be maintained by the City of Montreal so that lovers of snowshoeing, winter walking or fatbiking can enjoy a surface that is groomed for them to indulge their sport in the great outdoors.
