Accessible in summer and winter, the Desjardins Trail connects the municipalities of Saint-Jean-de-Matha, Sainte-Mélanie and Sainte-Béatrix. Whichever gateway you choose to access the Monte-à-Peine-et-des-Dalles Falls Regional Park, you will be able to take the Desjardins Trail and discover the park's most beautiful assets.

Don't miss the three magnificent waterfalls, the four suspended bridges - one of which is covered - as well as the lookouts offering an incomparable view of the surrounding area. Several other well-marked trails will allow you to appreciate different winter landscapes while varying the way back.

Families will particularly appreciate the short loop trails of La Gorge (0.6 km) at the Sainte-Béatrix Gate or La Chute (1 km) at the Saint-Jean-de-Matha Gate, which offer beautiful viewpoints while being easily accessible for children.
