Zone 11: Colonization trail

This area offers several natural attractions, a playground surrounded by deers that will keep you company along the path to the old farm. It will also be possible to visit a local artist’s workshop and watch a video about his particular art form. Children will be happy to stroke the donkeys, ponies, rabbits, and other small and large farm animals. The trailhead offers a reconstructed trading post of New France and Indian tipis that will take you back to the history of Quebec.
