Hiking is one of the easiest, least complicated outdoor activities you can do. Put on your hiking shoes, lace them up, and off you go to discover the Outaouais region! From east to west, from north to south, our region is criss-crossed by hiking, skiing and snowshoeing trails. Visit a cave that’s more than 20,000 years old. After a hike among white-tailed deer, take a well-deserved break in a woodcutter’s hut. Watch beavers hard at work. Feed hungry trout at Parc Oméga. Admire the power and beauty of the waterfalls at Plaisance and Fort-Coulonge. Have a cup of tea at the Mackenzie King Estate, or a beer at a pub overlooking Brewery Creek. Walk the trail around Leamy Lake, then try your luck at the casino. In city and country alike, it’s amazing what you can discover when you take the time to stop and look around. Marshes, fields, mountains, ancient forests, lakes and rivers are just waiting to reveal their true nature.
