The Inn's walking and hiking trails

You have access to the Inn’s 15 km of marked trails which lead to the lookout points on the mountains that surround the Inn. While there, you can look out on the different types of woods of the area, the foliage, the conifers, various trees and maples.

If you don’t think you have enough time to explore the Matawinie trails, you can climb one of the mountains using the trails that surround our Inn. You might come across small game animals or small game birds, along the brook and coming up to the summit; you will see the valley and the Inn.

The Matawinie trails

The Matawinie trails are accessible directly from the Inn. Redeveloped in 2000, they are integrated into the National Trail, giving you access to many well planned out days of walking and hiking.

Just a few minutes from our facilities, you will find the Sept Chutes and Matawinie walking trails.



During the spring and summer you can fish nice little trout in our lake. There is speckled and rainbow trout fishing in our pond, limited to 2 fish per person.

In collaboration with the outfitters in the region, we offer fishing stays, with an American plan, for the whole family. The fishers can be enticed by the speckled and rainbow trout while others relax on the river bank or lakeshore

As well, in collaboration with the La barrière outfitter and Domaine Basilières outfitter, situated less than half a kilometre from the Inn, we can organise as many days of fishing as you like. We can also supply the necessary equipment. Stéphane, Corrine or their children will give you a tasty fish recipe!

On our lake you can also take advantage or our canoes, kayaks and paddleboats without being disturbed by motor boats.
