La Forestière

Parc national de la Yamaska

The Forestière trail provides a great overview of the park’s vegetation mosaic. You’ll travel through young hardwood forests, dense patches of evergreens, and sense the expanse of the forest canopy of mature maple stands. The route features nine discovery spots. Request the touring companion in the form of an iPod at the Discovery and Visitor’s Centre counter.
