Bird lovers should be in their glory because the escarpments within the reserve provide refuge for more than 80 per cent of all birds of prey species recorded in Quebec.

The site is open year-round with 16  kilometres of trails for hiking

   

Our hike will cover 9 km which should take approximately 2 hours to hike. The trails are accessible from train station in Prévost, with the new pedestrian access that goes along the linear park of the P'tit Train du Nord. 

We will meet at 9:30 a.m. in the Prevost Train station parking lot (free).
