Chemin Slouce in St-Herménégilde

This gravel road is so well-maintained that it feels like riding on stone shavings. And the exceptional views? Chef’s kiss!

KM 44

Des Bobines Fish Farm

Smoked trout, pâtés, spreads and lots of delicious local eats. These are just a few of the things you’ll find at this Hereford fish farm. Pro tip? Pack some crackers and have a bit of space in your pack

Hereford Community Forest

While there is hiking (16 km), mountain biking (55 km) and stunning unspoilt nature, the real beauty of this place is the engaged community behind the conservation efforts.

KM 83

Fromagerie Les Broussailles

Organic, raw goat milk cheeses are on the menu at this artisanal cheese shop. The property is picturesque, the hospitality is world-class, and the goats are admittedly cute as can be.

Laiterie de Coaticook

I scream, you scream, we all scream for… a stop at this local favourite. What’ll it be: Chocolate, double caramel or maple taffy?


Microbrasserie de Coaticook

Come for the elevated pub menu (think fried calamari, veggie burgers, nachos, and oysters), stay for craft beers like Session IPA, Scotch Ale or Blanche aux Framboises raspberry wheat beer. Cheers!
