Other places to go for a walk in the forest

There's nothing like the calm of the forest to take a break from the routine and hassle of everyday life. And in Vaudreuil-Soulanges, we are fortunate to have several parks offering walking trails open to the public. Enough to allow you to come back to explore the region, again and again!

On skis or snowshoes, exploring trails in winter is great!

In Vaudreuil-Soulanges, winter takes place outside! And exploring the trails of our many parks on foot, snowshoes or cross-country skis are some of our favorite winter activities. Some of these parks also offer equipment rental services.

A walk along the water

Vaudreuil-Soulanges is bordered by many major bodies of water, from the Ottawa River in the north to Lac Saint-François in the south. Several of our parks allow you to come and admire these spectacular nautical panoramas.

Bring your dog out for a hike

Dogs also love outdoor walks, but it's not always easy to find places where it's allowed to come with your four-legged friend. Here are some trails where you can bring your dog out for a hike. (Please note that dogs must be on leash on most of these trails.)

Fun hikes with the kids

Here are some perfect places for a family hiking. Walk on the trails, adventure on a hebertism course, learn some of the region's history or enjoy many of the other activities offered in these parks.
