At the entrance of the building you pay the daily fees. There is a shop, toilets and exhibition rooms. We didn’t look this time if there were exhibitions, check online to be up to date.

We walked the blue trail (Le Marécage) and green trail (La Prucheraie) which is total of about 2.1km easy walk. The rest of the trails were only for cross country ski at this period of the year.

We walked clockwise starting to the left of the main building along the water on the green trail, we then continued on the blue trail and finished the walk on the green again. First view point was just at the beginning, a tower with nice views.

Our kids kept on running and enjoying the flat terrain so we ended our walk super quickly. We decided to head for the town of Granby for lunch and a walk around the lake.

We drove few minutes to Granby, parked near the junction of Rue Denison E and Rue de la Gare / Rue Drummond and walked on the cycle lane (route Verte), which sits on Granby’s old train trucks, until we reached Parc Daniel – Johnson and headed back to the car.
