An area that has been inhabited since the end of the 19th century, the municipality adopted the name of Val-Racine in 1957 to pay homage to Sherbrooke’s first bishop, Antoine Racine. In 1883, during their first land-clearing efforts, the settlers built a sanctuary on the peak of Mount Saint-Joseph, at an altitude of 1,065 m, to ask for protection against the harsh climate that prevailed in the region. A popular place for pilgrimages, meditation, and hiking, it is still accessible today via a paved road in the Parc National du Mont-Mégantic. The chapel, overlooking the Appalachian Mountains, offers a panoramic view of the bordering mountains and Lake Megantic. The little village of Val-Racine has a good number of tourist accommodations because of its proximity to the lake and the Parc National du Mont-Mégantic. It has everything to thrill nature enthusiasts: Summit Drive cycling network, snowmobile trails, hiking and dogsledding trail, hunting, and star gazing; it is also the departure point for the Parcours de Marche au Cœur de Mégantic.
