A small town with lots to offer, Pointe-des-Cascades is one of the ideal spots to start a tour of the southern part of the region. With ample parking near the beginning of the Soulanges Canal bike path, cyclists, rollerbladers and walkers can easily enjoy an active day outdoors. Home to a popular summer theatre and a well-kept RV campground, Pointe-des-Cascades is a picturesque ten-minute drive from Highway 20 and Vieux Dorion. Check out the open-air anchor display and the town lighthouses before heading along the canal. The canal locks are permanently closed, creating a series of waterfalls; follow the path along the canal for great picture opportunities. From there, explore a unique wetland habitat home to mammals, migratory birds, reptiles, amphibians, and special plants; keep your eyes peeled for remnants of the area’s long history along the canal and in the woods. A lovely picnic spot, the conservation area is also popular with boaters and sport fishers.
