The 35-year-old Intercentre trail is a portion of the National Trail, straddling the Lanaudière and Laurentides tourist regions. The Lanaudière portion takes you to the top of the Montagne Noire to discover the 1943 crash site of an RCAF Liberator aircraft. At 875 m, this is the highest summit in Saint-Donat. The Mésangeai shelter is at 850 m.
