Forêt habitée de Dudswell

Nestled in a forested rural area overlooking a lake from the ice age, the Forêt habitée de Dudswell has various trails that form a 12-km network where you’ll find interpretation panels on the fauna and flora, an observation tower, a marsh, the wintering grounds of deer, a beaver dam, and, of course, stunning views. In winter, snowshoe and cross-country ski trails are marked and suitable for the whole family. Trail maps are available at Dudswell Maison de la culture (900, rue du Lac), Maison de Lime Ridge (243, rue principale O.), or can be downloaded from the Web site. Closed during hunting season for safety reasons (November).
