If you are a fan of nature and hiking do NOT go to this place. It was a big disappointment. It's path's are well maintained but leave nothing to the imagination. The bridge was a big attraction for our 5 year old but it's situation to the town makes it less breath taking. Some of the trails were also very... More

This was my second time there and they have added a lot of new activities. The trails are easy and well marked, making them accessible to all types of hikers. I was very scared on the suspended bridge but am happy I walked it. The views were great, the air smells so nice. I will be back again, this time... More

My friend suggested this as a place to visit in the Eastern Townships in the fall. We were faced with several road detours during our October visit and the access point was not totally clear in the off season. But the Gorge was well worth the effort. Great fall colours, a nice walk in the cool forest and good panoramic... More

Most of the reviewers are focused on the Foresta Lumina which takes place in Coaticook Gorge at nights on weekends. It is a combination of Lord of the Rings especially Rivendell, Stephen King (all those people seemingly unable to resist the lure of the lights) The Walking Dead (all those people trying to get onto the suspension bridge) and the...

We drove from Ottawa to see an "enchanted forest", Foresta Lumina. Their website showed all kinds of awesome things, and we were eager to see it ourselves. Problems started with parking. Even though it was 10:30pm, it was close to impossible to find a parking spot. All the dedicated parking spots were taken, and people were parking along the neighbouring... More

Beautiful nature park with lots trails for hiking biking and climbing. Foresta Lumina exquisite night time show of lights and animation. Breathtaking and well worth it.

My wife and I visited the Parc de la Gorge de Coaticook at night for the Foresta Lumina attraction, and we were thrilled. I have gone on night time hikes before and of course, the woods are very different at night, but this unique way of enjoying a forest trail at night was quite something else. The only thing I...

Splendid park for easy, family trekking in beautiful Eastern Township. Highlights include the suspended bridge, one of the longest in Canada, and the observation tower with gorgeous views all around. But the real treat is the night time visit where lightings illuminate magically the forests. It's a bit crowded and reservation must be made well in advance. During summer, don't... More

The unserviced campsite we chose was amazing! Site looked out onto the river which was deep enough to swim and not so deep or too strong a current that I had to be concerned for the kids. Foresta illumina was very fun. Very long wait to get in even with your reservation (which is necessary). Kids 4&7 were excited by... More

Very nice, magical. Totally worth the visit, except maybe for a bit too much people. Kids 5 and 8 loved it, but were afraid. Probably scary for 10-year-old and less.
