Boisé du Tremblay is a nature reserve located between Vieux-Longueuil and Boucherville, not far from Michel-Chartrand Park. The reserve extends for 267 hectares and its biodiversity is considered as unique in the Montérégie area. It is home to many species of flora and fauna, including the western cricket frog.
Be aware that the entrance to the park on the side of Chemin du Tremblay is not very visible, especially when it’s snowy. However, parking is free and the landscape is enchanting. The main trail is marked by long wooden walkways, benches and observation points. During our walk, we met police on their quad bikes. They were very nice when they stopped talking to us and showed us their new bikes. They also explained that many people walk their dogs there, but it is forbidden to leave them free in the undergrowth, which hosts species prospected.
Once you reach the opposite end of the park, be mindful and follow the signposted trails: we didn’t and we got lost. It was quite an adventure, but we eventually found our way by following the HydroQuebec towers.
