A charming town with so much personality
Rawdon is well-known for its beauty. Just one hour from Montreal, its charming setting and easy access have been attracting visitors from all over for a long time. The area is an ethnic mosaic that adds so much local colour. In summer, the beach is a popular spot, with all you need for a fun time on the water.
While the adventurous try their hand at a treetop circuit, hikers can explore trails of Chutes Dorwin Park. Families can have a fun time visiting the bison farm or picnicking under the tall pine trees next to the stunning 60-metre high waterfall. Even more accessible is Parc des Cascades—the ideal place to relax after a game of golf or to enjoy a horseback ride. Aching muscles? Head to La Source spa before settling in for the night in a cabin or yurt.
Spellbound at Parc des Chutes Dorwin
The waters of the Ouareau River come thundering down over 60 feet, making for a mesmerizing sight. Two lookout points offer spectacular views of the surrounding nature. To get there, make your way through the 2.5 km of trails dotted with information about the native flora.

This magnificent park with multiple cascades is the perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon with family or friends. While enjoying the sound of streams flowing over the rocks, you can enjoy a barbecue, available onsite, or sit down for a picnic. A great way to fill up on fresh air!
