Description

"A nice technical trail including alternance of steep climbs and flat sections.  Nice views of the Canyon ste-Anne.  "

The Mestachibo Trail links the Saint- Ferréol-les-Neiges church to the Jean-Larose waterfalls which is at the bottom of Mont-Sainte-Anne Resort. «Le Mestashibo» follows the course of the Sainte-Anne-du-Nord river  for most of its length. It gives access to majestic sights in a natural area previously inaccessible.

The views are, like the trail, very hilly and will allow you to discover a mature tree population, many landslides and cliffs. At mid-course, two belvederes await hikers, which give a breathtaking view of the canyon and the river rapids. In addition, two suspended bridges, of a length of 70 meters, will help you cross the Sainte-Anne river.

The trail can be done both ways. From the church of the village of Saint-Ferreol-les-Neiges, you are going down the river. From the base of Mont-Sainte-Anne, you are going up the river.

Since the trail is quite inaccessible, VTT or mountain bikes cannot have access to it, which is excellent for your tranquility.

The Mestachibo Trail is broken into 2 segments, West & East:

MESTASHIBO WEST:  From Mont Ste-Anne to St-Ferréol-les-Neiges: 13,8 km

MESTASHIBO EAST:  From St-Ferréol-les-Neiges à St-Tite-des-Caps: 11,6 km
