Located 200 m from the observation tower, the trail winds through boreal forest. All along the route, interpretive signs explain geological phenomena and learn about the diversity of the flora of this site, which enjoys a microclimate. In a section of the path, we can build an inukshuk with stones littering the site. The trail climbs a hill, from where one has a panoramic view of the forest and lakes in the region and leads to Roche, an erratic block of 250 tons, older segment of the ripped mountain and deposited at the back of a glacier. A small bird trail can observe and learn about the many species of birds that inhabit the area, including geese and sandhill cranes.

For a  lookback at the history ofthe region, one can take  91 meters underground to visit the City of Gold. This is the deepest gold mining in Quebec where you can learn the methods of mineral extraction and wander  through  the former mining village of Bourlamaque, which is still inhabited.
