Snowshoeing: La Sauvagine trail

This is a 6 km snowshoeing trail with 19 m of elevation gain located in the Oka National Park. The drive from Montreal is about 55min. The cost is 8.75$ if you don’t have a SEPAQ Anual Card. The departure for this trail is in the beach sector.

The trail is easy and with 16 m elevation gain flat the whole way. It’s starts along the beach before going in the woods. Some portions of the trails are shared with Fat Bikes but wide enough to accommodate both safely. This is a good trail for beginners but if you keep a good pace you can still get a sweat out of it.

The view of the frozen lake from the beach are pretty nice and once you’re in the woods you go through a few nice wooden area on the shores of Lake Sauvagine. Obviously there is no peek or view point but it’s still a nice trail with some nice photo opportunities.

The trails are well indicated and maintain, and they also have 4 other snowshoe trails in the park that range from 3.5km to 14km and a couple are on the side of the mountain and have some elevation gain.
