Townships Trail

430 km

38 stops

Discover the history that shaped the Eastern Townships by following in the footsteps of the first wave of inhabitants. Americans, Loyalists, Scottish and Irish settlers came to the area during the late 18th century and throughout the 19th century and their imprint permanently marked the landscape and heritage of the region. On the Chemin des Cantons, you’ll travel through 31 towns and villages strewn with gorgeous Victorian homes, round barns, historical characters, covered bridges, museums, churches representing 17 different faiths, interpretive sites and more—all telling the captivating tale of the Townships through time.
