Winter provides a very special scenery: bright light, clear view, the crunch of footsteps on the snow...

With its 8 marked trails stretching over 54 km, La Mauricie National Park is a destination of choice for snowshoeing and winter hiking.

On snowshoes, with crampons or simply wearing the right boots if the conditions allow it, winter hiking is easy; you just have to put one foot in front of the other!

Only fees for the activity are charged (i.e., no admission fee). The Parks Canada Discovery pass does not apply for winter activities. Visitors must stop at the perception kiosk to make the purchase from their car.
