Hike description: The access to the Mestachibo trail is free of charge and it is used for hiking in summer and snowshoeing in winter.  The trail goes from the Saint-Ferréol-les-Neiges church to the Jean-Larose waterfalls located at the base of Mont-Sainte-Anne Resort.  «Le Mestachibo» follows the greater part of the Sainte-Anne-du-Nord River course.  It gives visitors access to majestic and unusual sights in a natural area previously inaccessible.

The scenery is, like the trail, rugged and allow hikers to discover a population of mature trees as well as several landslides and cliffs.  At mid-course, two belvederes await hikers and offer breathtaking views of the canyon and the river rapids.  Two suspended bridges measuring 70 meters cross the Sainte-Anne River.

The trail can be hiked both ways.  Either from the church of the village of Saint-Ferréol-les-Neiges where hikers will follow down the Sainte-Anne River, or from the base of Mont-Sainte-Anne Resort, where you will follow the River up.

Since the trail is quite steep, it is not accessible to VTT or mountain bikes.  And this guarantees tranquillity.

Since January 2011, the trail offers hidden treasures for geo-catching enthusiasts.  For more information, check out: http://www.geocaching.com/seek/cache_details.aspx?wp=GC2M579
