National parks and reserves
In the Outaouais, we know that nature is one of our most precious resources, and we work hard to preserve and protect it. Our region has two dozen protected areas for you to enjoy, from wildlife reserves to regional and national parks. Explore the Route des Zingues trail winding between lakes Gagnon and Preston. Hike to the summit of Mount Morissette, warm up by the wood stove in the mountaintop shelter, and admire the spectacular view from the observation tower.In the Forêt-la-Blanche Wildlife Reserve you can take a walk in one of the oldest forests in eastern North America. For a challenging outdoor adventure or anything in between, the natural beauty of Outaouais awaits you.
