Vallon du Sornin


Site botanique intéressant, les gorges du Sornin sont classées.

This valley on the western flank of the Mont Saint-Rigaud boasts a different kind of flora from the rest of the region because it receives a lot of rain. Many of the plants that grow here, like sweet-amber, or tutsan, are normally found in Atlantic climates.

Cut into the Carboniferous (345 - 325 Mya) schistose rocks of Saint-Rigaud, the Vallon du Sornin plunges hikers into a rich abundance of nature, where Douglas firs mingle with the prairies on the lower slopes.
