To reach the border community of Chartierville, take scenic Route 257 South. Prior to its founding in 1870 by French-Canadian colonists from Saint-Hyacinthe, gold prospectors were already active on the Ditton River. The “El Dorado” of the Eastern Townships, one of the highest locations in Quebec, is as fascinating for its history and landscapes as for its natural riches. The Centre d’Interprétation de la Mine d’Or tells the fascinating saga of the gold rush in this corner of the country. After travelling another five kilometres towards the border, visitors will arrive at an interpretation kiosk to learn about and experience the magnetic hill phenomenon. A little higher up on the road, a rest area provides an impressive view of the region. This is also a starting point for the Sentiers Frontaliers (135 km) trail network as well as a link to the Parc National du Mont-Mégantic.
