Parc Les Salines
Just ten minutes from Saint-Hyacinthe, over 100 hectares of maintained forest and green spaces await at Les Salines Park. With walking and mountain biking trails, picnic areas, and a water play area, it’s the perfect place for family fun!
A 9 km hike in the heart of Saint-Hyacinthe? You heard right! It’s surprising, riveting, and oh so enjoyable. The Randonnée maskoutaine takes you on a tour of the city’s historical and natural heritage: its first houses, monuments, the market, the Yamaska River, parks, gardens, and so much more! Don’t miss out on this stroll back in time!
Réserve naturelle du Boisé-des-Douze
Boisé-des-Douze Nature Reserve boasts a 2.5 km linear footpath in a breathtaking forest. And with the viewing areas by the stream, you’ll be able to observe many bird species in their natural habitat. Just lovely!
Sentier pédestre Champagne-Grenier
Located in Acton Vale, Champagne-Grenier Trail takes you through a beautiful natural setting to Le Renne River. You’ll even find rest and picnic areas, a public washroom, small flower gardens, and several bird and rodent feeders.
So which of these hikes appeals to you most? We hope you’ll try them all and make the most of the summer. If you’re really feeling motivated, our beautiful region is full of other trails. Happy hiking!
