Barachois Trail

Le Barachois interpretation trail (a 5 km return circuit) is located in very special wetlands, between Dune du Nord and the lowlands of Fatima. The numerous interpretation panels along the trail highlight the value of salt water, brackish and fresh water marshes, as well as of wetlands that harbour a diversity of plants and bird species.
