Forêt ancienne

A must-see outdoor destination!

Located in Plessisville, only 15 minutes from exit 253 of Highway 20, the Forêt ancienne will charm you with its 12 km of trails along the magnificent Rivière Noire. Characterized by a minor change in elevation, these trails are accessible to the whole family and usually to big wheel strollers.

Being accessible to families also means that we welcome dogs on a leash because we know that your four-legged friends are an integral part of your family!

The Forêt ancienne offers several activities that are accessible to everyone: hiking (and snowshoeing in winter), trout fishing, fauna and flora interpretation panels and cycling. Families will particularly appreciate the obstacle course and the GPS rally.

Visit the following sections to learn more about each activity!
