Live in the moment
Forges du Saint-Maurice National Historic Site
The nature trail
This 1.5-km long trail provides access to one of the most beautiful places on Trois-Rivières soil to view the Saint-Maurice River during the summer. Watch the birds, listen for the wind in the leaves, and take a deep breath.
Wide green spaces
You may have worked up an appetite after your walk. What would you say now to a picnic?
Several tables have been set out for your enjoyment. But if you'd rather sit on the lawn, by all means suit yourself! There's no shortage of seating with a view!
Going down the valley…
By taking the trail along the St. Maurice Creek, you will pass in front of the vestiges of the upper forge and of the flour and wood mill.
You will soon seen a very tall stone chimney, an amazing vestige rising almost 15 m above the ground. It is in fact the chimney of the lower forge, which was built a few dozen metres from the St. Maurice River.
It's a beautiful riverside site you won't want to pass up!
