Aiguebelle National Park is a national park in Quebec. It is located partly in Mont-Brun and Taschereau, in the Abitibi-Témiscamingue tourist region and about 50 kilometres from Rouyn-Noranda. It covers an area of 268.3 km2. The park was established in 1985 and underwent a boundary review in 1998. Its mission is to protect a representative sample of the Abitibi clay belt and the Abijévis Hills.
Only the squealing of your snowshoes digging in the snow and your breath transforming the crystalline air into a fine mist blur the silence of Aiguebelle. At Lac La Haie or on the top of La Trompeuse Hill, every step you take leaves your mark on the hare, ruffed grouse and moose that cross these amazing landscapes. A total of 40 kilometres, divided into four marked trails, allow you to fully appreciate your human dimension in this northern whiteness. Do you see the pretty rustic shelter in the distance? This could be your base camp for one or more nights. Two hours, two days, two weeks....take all the time you need in the exhilarating winter purity of Aiguebelle National Park.
It was in 1945 that the Government of Quebec noticed, following the colonization of Abitibi, the lack of space for wildlife in the region. Thus, he chose the canton of Aiguebelle for the creation of a hunting and fishing reserve, due to the poverty of its lands. In 1976, this one opened a campground and hiking trails. In 1980, the status of the hunting and fishing reserve was changed to wildlife reserve. In 1985, this reserve was divided in two to create the Aiguebelle Conservation Park, which covers an area of 241.7 km2. Following a public consultation in 1998, the wildlife reserve was abolished and the park was expanded to its current size. In 2001, the park's status was changed to national park status following an amendment to the Parks Act.
