Located in Rang 3 East, the Légaré cottage was intended to be a shelter where cross-country skiers could warm up before heading up again.
In 1980, cross-country skiing was a very popular sport. Several trails were accessible and Saint-Odilon cleared land to develop a trail that would join the Beauce-Appalaches Trail that spans from Lac-Etchemin to Sainte-Marie. Today, the cross-country skiing trail was relocated closer to the urban area.
