The areas managed by Héritage Saint-Bernard are perfect for hiking. Whether you are curious by nature, like to contemplate or are more fitness-oriented, the trails take you through a wonderful variety of ecosystems. In addition, these sites are at the doorstep of large urban areas!
You will enjoy eight kilometres of trails at the Marguerite-D’Youville wildlife sanctuary on Île Saint-Bernard in Châteauguay. A variety of trails are available so you can go on short or longer hikes. You will also have benches, picnic tables, interpretation panels and bathrooms at your disposal. If you are a nature lover, birdwatcher or photographer on the lookout, you will highly appreciate the walkways, docks and other installations! A free way to enhance your experience is the audio guide, which provides a wealth of information about the site and its history. There is also the wildlife sanctuary digital rally, which offers a fun way for the young and not so young to learn! An admission fee is charged to access the wildlife sanctuary trails. Access is through the Pavillon de l’île.
Hikers with snowshoes can use them, respecting the regulations in place (off-trail prohibited).
