School’s out for the summer, which means it’s time for adventure… and perhaps a little Canadian history lesson thrown in for good measure!
CHUTES COULONGE PARK
This summer, experience history, culture and adventure at the Parc des Chutes Coulonge Adventure Park. Adrenaline junkies will not want to miss the zip lines, aerial park, obstacle courses, via ferrata and so much more.
Then, once you’ve had your fill of heart-pumping adventure, it’s time to learn about Canada’s amazing timber history. Hiking trails at the Parc des Chutes Coulonge are not just any ordinary trails – they also feature a walk along the canyon, a picturesque view of the falls, and a collection of artefacts from yesteryear’s log drive.
FUN FACT: Chutes Coulonge is a beautiful, historic site that is managed and maintained by a non-profit organization. They use all monies collected through admission, souvenir sales and canteen sales to preserve, maintain and develop this site and the various activities hosted annually.
IN THE NIMBLE FOOTSTEPS OF THE LOG DRIVERS
If you’re planning a trip to the Coulonge Falls Park, why not follow a route that showcases a canyon, a former railway station now home to a collection of artifacts, an impressive covered bridge, and a stately heritage inn. After all, the western part of the Outaouais region is known as the Pontiac. And the Pontiac area is stunning and vibrant, with so much waiting to be discovered.
