Regional Park of 7 waterfalls – Trail Voile de la Mariée

It was on my mind to write about this walk we did back in early September, on a sunny day but the ground was slippery from rainy days before. The trail is rough. Although it is considered an intermediate - easy hike, it can be difficult for young kids. The park does not allow strollers. It includes a walk along the river, a waterfall and a steep climb uphill. I definitely recommend taking a child carrier backpack, or to hike with older kids.

Desjardins waterfall hike – Porte Ste-Béatrix

I am happy to write about this hike as we were confused from the information about this walk when we first looked at it. Hopefully it will be easier to follow now. This great park is totally worth the visit. It has three main entrances, Porte Ste- Béatrix, Porte St-Jean de Marta and Porte Ste-Mélanie. The Rivière L'Assomption crosses this park and offers three waterfalls which can be viewed from bridges. The walk - Sentier Desjardins which is described here is about 5km return.

Grande Coulée Beer Festival – Mont Orford

Last September we headed for the Beer Festival at Mont Orford. I always try to collect regional tourism brochures everywhere I go and I found out about this fantastic beer festival this way. I am not 100% sure but I believe this is the second year this festival is taking place. Many Quebec microbreweries participated in this festival to present their beers along with local food stands and brasseries. The festival was taking place on the weekend of 15-17 of September 2017.
