 Nature Trails

In every walk in with nature one receives far more than he seeks

John Muir

discover the surrounding nature

by walking the interpretive trails

 

Wandering around our pastures and through a magnificent forested area, our 4km trail system is well maintained and very easy to walk.  Many handmade benches are available along the way should you wish to stop for a quick rest or just to soak in the serenity offered by Mother Nature. 

 

Interpretive panels are found along the trails where you will learn all about the fauna and flora of the bountiful Eastern Townships and Sutton area.  Learn more about the Alderbrook Marsh, a unique and protected wetland ecosystem that traverses our farmland.

The nature trail walk takes approximately 30 to 90 minutes depending on the path you take and your pace.

 

During the winter, the trails are also accessible with traction cleats or snowshoes when snow conditions are optimal (no rentals on-site).
