While you're here, cross the 64-metre-long suspension bridge 22 metres above Lac La Haie. Scan the vast horizon from atop a fire tower or race down a cliff on the 220-step spiral staircase. Whether you are exploring on foot or in a canoe or kayak in the summer, or on backcountry skis or snowshoes in the winter, come and discover this jewel of nature in the heart of Abitibi. Visit the Castorière trail, which won Kéroul's Honourable Mention in 2002.
