River Doncaster Park

Located in the Upper Laurentians, this park along the Doncaster River offers over 10 km. of mechanically groomed trails for winter activities.

The Doncaster River Park was once the site of a dam operated by Hydro Quebec, the Doncaster Dam.

Within the park are several places equipped for relaxation with benches or picnic tables. There are over 10km. of marked trails from which to observe the beauty and richness of flora and fauna.  In winter, two heated shelters are available. There are points where one can gaze at Mount Gabriel and enjoy the panoramic landscape of the city of Sainte Adele.  

** Note, although most trails are fairly flat, there is one trail that leads up to the view point. Therefore, hiking up this trail is required. If you take your time, should be suitable for most except if you have problems with your knees or poor cardiovascular conditioning.

We will begin the hike from trail #4 which is the most difficult, then do #7 and #8. We will retrace our steps on #7 then walk along #1 up to the Great West trail. We will have our lunch on the picnic tables along the river. Toilets are available.

 

After lunch, we will take the red trail towards trail #1 along the river, then the Great Western Trail and one in the opposite direction, if possible, to get to the lookout on #9 then return to the starting point via trail #4. Alternately, depending on the time, we can make the return trip along the river.

The trails are not particularly difficult; the vertical drop is negligible except perhaps for trails 8 and 9, but it still remains a very reasonable slope angle. The trails are considered accessible for the whole family.
