Sprinkled with lakes, rivers and creeks, the trail is representative of the Laurentian’s wildlife and plants (boreal and mixed). All along your route, magnificent views of lake Kénogami and the plain of Lake Saint-Jean will beautifully punctuate your hike. Not being accessible by motorized vehicles, you will find calm as lived the first explorers.
