The Pioneer Trail


Get acquainted with colourful and inspiring characters. Discover their history and the highlights of the development of the different municipalities in the Coaticook RCM. Let yourself be guided through the region's bucolic landscapes.

This tour is one of a kind in Quebec, composed of works - headstones - representing builders of the region. The suggested route will take you to picturesque roads where, in addition to driving between valleys and vales, you will discover the natural and built heritage of the region as well as a proud and welcoming population.

Take The Pioneer Trail and be charmed by voices from the past! At each headstone, the characters tell about their time through a sound-making device, this in addition to the historical pictures that appear on your cellphone: 200 years of history to be explored!

Note that the most favorable periods to enjoy your visit are from april to december (considering that most audible devices are removed during winter). But the GPS-guided tour, including pictures and presentations for smart devices as iOS and Android, is accessible all year long.

This application allows you to preload the Pioneer Trail tour in your device ("Preload" option of the device). You will then be able to access the maps and contents in the field without an Internet connection (via the My tours section).

The Pioneer Trail is a production of the Table de concertation culturelle of the Coaticook RCM (TCCC).
