Observation Trails

 [Temporarily closed - Work in progress]

In summer, four kilometers of forest trails crossing eight ecosystems are at your disposal. Curious and nature lovers will be charmed by the peace of the forest of Mont-Bénilde.

At winter, trails are passable in boots or you can do OFF-PISTE snowshoeing through the wood.


See pictures lower!

  • The visit of trails is freely made, without guide.
  • In the edge of the forest, there are animals in captivity, such as white-tailed deers, fox, gooses and ducks.
  • Buy a package with one or several guided tours give you automatically access to trails.
  • Two levels of observation rally are offered to you, at the reception of the Center. You have to find the wooden silhouettes of animals hidden in one of the segments of the trails. In reward in your efforts, sweet surprises wait for you at the reception!
