Moonbeam Nature trails
Discover an impressive natural landscape on any of our 7 trails which cover a total of 34 kilometres. Go walking, running, or cycling in the summer as well as snowshoeing and cross-country skiing in the winter. It's a relaxing and educational for everyone. Trails are related to beginner, intermediate and expert. The main trail is fully wheelchair accessible.
Moonbeam nature trails offer a whole series of trails of great beauty which will stimulate curiosity and enhance the will of solitary walkers who seek relaxation or groups and families who want to practice physical activities. We hope to see you there!
How to find the trails? Be on the lookout for green gates! You can find them in the village as well as in the surrounding areas. Whenever you see one of those gates, it marks the beginning of a trail. Here are a few places you can start your journey in the nature trails :
The middle of Marco street
Between the golf club and the community center
Near Twin Lake's camping
Near René Brunelle's provincial park
... and many more places! Take a look at the map to find where would be the most convenient for you.
We have bicycles to rent for free! We also rent snowshoes for free during the winter! Visit the tourist information centre for your free rentals.
Wildlife and bears
It is important to be careful while on the Nature Trails. The bear usually avoids human, but is attracted to urban and rural areas when in search of food. Here are a few tips that can help you safe :
bring a friend
carry a bear bell or make noise
let someone know where you are and how long you're planning to be there
stay on trails
NEVER approach, sneak up on, or surprise a bear
I want to take a moment to say how much I enjoyed Moonbeam. The provincial park is amazing and in a perfect spot for a comfortable overnight while enjoying the northern cross Canada route. Finding how extensive and fun your trails are was a huge bonus this morning. It was a perfect way to loosen up before heading east. I will definetely let people know about you.
