At the park Cap Saint-Jacques many beautiful places can be found, each one with its own charm like this one, in front of de la Pointe house where we can just seat and contemplate the sunset over Deux-Montagnes frozen Lake.
Featuring 26 kilometers of hiking trails and over 30 kilometers of trails for cross country skiing, the park also offers a variety of options for the visitors, like an organic farm, which raises animals and grows organic produce, environmental science activities and an authentic sugar shack, or cabane à sucre in French, where we can watch the production of maple syrup and savour a delicious tire d’érable, which is a sort of lollipop made from boiling maple syrup poured into fresh snow and then wrapped around a stick or a spoon!

Located on the western tip of the island, at the junction of Deux Montagnes Lake and des Prairies River, Cap Saint-Jacques Nature Park is Montréal’s largest park and has nice cross-country ski, hike and snowshoe trails. These are the familiar type and style of trails, most of the time flat with sporadically (easy) slopes. The “Château Gohier”, a hundred years old stone building, serves today as a restaurant for visitors.
