Take your pick: adrenaline packed or slow and contemplative?
Coaticook River Valley
Looking for tranquility and gravel paths? Look no further. On this route, sturdy tires are a must—you might even want to opt for an electric bike. (rental at Vélotric, Coaticook). You’ll pedal through quaint villages like Hatley and the municipality of Barnston West (Kingscroft, Way’s Mill) before returning via Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook. Gravel roads, like Chemin Perreault, offer some of the most stunning views onto the region.
137, rue Michaud, Coaticook
Hiking, mountain biking, camping and, come nightfall, the magic of Foresta Lumina.
For a memorable stay, check out this so-called “eco-futurist lodge.” It features yurt-style cabins just a stone’s throw from Parc de la Gorge.
This road offers a breathtaking 360-degree view on the fields, farms and mountains in the distance. Bask in the area’s serene ambiance and, if you’re as lucky as our cycling experts were (twice!), come across deer along the way.
Must-try cheeses at this renowned artisanal shop include Alfred le Fermier, Comtomme, and Hatley—all are well worth the stop. And while you’re there, visit the new Économusée de la Fromagerie Fermière, a museum that offers a multi-sensory experience dedicated to cheese and farming.
The impressive Stanley-Holmes round barn, built in 1907 for William Stanley Holmes, a dairy farmer, has been well taken care of over the years by its owner, M. Stanley Holmes, grandson of William. His constant attention and all the care he devoted to its upkeep has raised this country barn to the rank of being a true heritage art masterpiece.
