A night-illuminated pathway

Foresta Lumina is a multimedia trail that wanders through seven zones.
From the Wish Garden to the Enchanted Riverbank, visitors are encouraged to explore the path at their own pace.

Each zone experience lasts from 3 to 5 minutes.

Margaret lived at the edge of Coaticook’s woodlands for decades.
She had a rare gift she could see what others could not. Her spirit has lived in the woods ever since.
We ask for your cooperation to ensure that Foresta Lumina is a smoke-free trail. The pathway is not recommended for those with reduced mobility.

The Creature

Feared since the dawn of time, this giant man hides in the forests of North America. It is said that this heartless, bloodthirsty monster’s appetite is never satisfied.

The Devil

Taking on the form of a distinguished man, the Devil has been seen in the gorge’s forest many times. He stirs up the fires of hell whenever someone refuses his ill-intentioned proposals.

The Gate

The Gate separates the everydayworld from the imaginary realm. Those who venture through it enter a magical dimension that reveals the secrets of Coaticook’s mystical gorge.

Thunder

Thunder has always decided the fate of Coaticook residents, creating floods and disruptions in all seasons. Ancient peoples feared that occult forces were exerting their control.

The Fairies

The Fairies have the power to grant wishes. Those who take fairies for mere fireflies should be wary; fairies can also become wicked and blow their victims into an infernal whirlwind.

The Tree

It is said that dead trees in the forest come back to life at nightfall. The gorge’s eternal tree is kind but amuses itself by playing tricks on passers-by.

The Spirit of the Forest

The Spirit of the Forest ensures harmony between the gorge’s elements and creatures. Mysterious and elusive, it rarely reveals itself to humans. Ancient peoples appealed to its powers of protection.
