    Great trails for beginners and advanced hikers. Not much to see in between views, but the wilderness is waiting to be discovered by those who wish to see it.

    I cross country skied twice at Sentier des Caps near Le Massif during February 2013. Overall, a very nice, low key cross country ski and snowshoe facility. For classic skiing...not for skating...
