Chemin des Sablières, St-Mathieu-d'Harricana
This unique tourist site is located right in the heart of the Harricanian Forest. The facilities provide the opportunity to collect esker water that comes from the Périgny spring, the same public water that runs continuously. Visitors will learn about the history of the formation of eskers through six interpretation panels. Visitors will learn about the last ice age to the influence of Lac Barlow-Ojibway, and what characterizes the St-Mathieu-Berry esker. The last panel shows the Eska water bottling process. The layout allows for a stop-over, or picnic with family or friends, and is located 6 km from the village by taking the Lanoix road until des Sablières road.
