Sentier des Mineurs

In a few words

The Sentier des mineurs is a hiking trail with a difficulty level ranging from easy to intermediate. Accessible to all, this site offers a safe environment to practice physical activities and enjoy the enchanting sceneries during all four seasons.

This site is one of the few places where Mother Nature has taken back what was her's in a way that emphasizes the beauty of the mine residue and the history it carries. You will have the chance to discover, in an almost lunar-looking setting, two mine pits that have become lakes. One is marked by a marvellous waterfall, while the other offers unforgettable views of its turquoise blue water.

Along the different trails, 7.8 km in total, numerous amenities are at your disposition: a play area for the kids, observation points, rest areas, amazing view points and informational panels (historic, geologic and environmental).
