Sherbrooke - Promenade de la gorge de la Magog et promenade des Rapides

Sherbrooke - Urban walks

The lit trails developed along the Magog River gorge highlight the wonderful, natural character of this pedestrian link between Lac des Nations and downtown Sherbrooke. In the heart of the city, the promenade de la gorge is ideal for a nighttime outing, thanks to the artistically designed lighting installations. With the twos lit gateways, visitors have easy access to the site. Along the Promenade, they can admire the landforms sculpted by the Magog River. Note that the first mile which begins at the Sherbrooke tourist information office is closed for the winter, then only the promenade des Rapides is accessible at this time.
