Description & Services
Information On one side is a wilderness-gnarled windblown forest, streams and bogs and scraps or meadow. On the other side are endless ocean vistas - a view of the sea which stretches all the way from here to Europe. The sea is the highway which brought the first settlers to Isle Madame more than 350 years ago and the source of the masses of codfish which sustained them. You will find many interpretive bilingual signs with detailed information on early settlers all along the walking trail. Follow the Isle Madame roadside signs to Boudreauville trailhead, where you will find parking, a picnic area, washrooms and orientation signs and maps. Allow half a day to hike the whole trail, or choose a shorter route by following one or more of the many paths off the main trail.
