A Trail Through the Islands 2 MB

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is the islands' trail accessible in the winter?

    There is no snow removal on the trails in the winter. Since these are permanent trails, if the weather is mild and there aren't any significant snowfalls, the trails will be visible, so they would be accessible in winter.

  • Are there any impediments on the trails?

    While an event or construction work is going on there could be some localized impediments which might cause some minor detours: this gives you the opportunity to strike out on an adventure and make some discoveries!

  • Is there a print version of a brochure?

    The print version of the brochure is currently no longer available. The Parc Jean-Drapeau staff is considering a possible reconfiguration of the trails, as well as the format of the brochure in an effort to reduce the ecological footprint.
