Parc historique de La Poudrière de Windsor

The Poudrière de Windsor trails offer a warm welcome in a 100-year-old building that once housed an old black powder factory. Pair culture with your activities and enjoy a permanent exhibition (Dust & Light) included in your daily package. The trails are adjacent to the Watopeka River and crisscross the land of the Domtar paper mill. It is possible to make loops varying from 1 km to 6.25 km. Come and discover our beautiful landscapes.
