Le Centre nature Saint-Basile

1, avenue du Centre-Nature
Saint-Basile
QC, G0A 3G0

About 50 minutes from Old Québec is located a much appreciated site, with 30 km (18.6 miles) of trails stretching through maple groves and forests, as well as along rivers.

In the winter, dress warmly to participate in the site's major activity: innertubing. The mechanical lift makes getting back up the hill effortless. If you prefer cross-country skiing or snowshoeing, head out to explore the 10 km (6.2 miles) of trails through the woods. Bring your lunch with you, which you can eat at the waystation located at each trail junction.
