The Chaudière-Appalaches region is made up of several small areas with very distinct geographical features. Located opposite Québec City, on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River, it stretches across a vast fertile plain before slowly climbing into the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains all the way to the American border. The Rivière Chaudière, which originates in Lac Mégantic, flows through the centre of the region, then empties into the St. Lawrence River across from Québec City.
Between Leclercville and Saint-Roch-des-Aulnaies, the shores of the St. Lawrence River are perfect for charming walks through the pretty pastoral countryside. A fertile plain between the Appalachian Mountains and the river, the area was occupied very early on by France. This trail guide includes hiking trails at Domaine Joly De Lotbiniere, Seigneurie des Aulnaies, Levis Trails, Parc des Chutes-de-la-Chaudiere, Montmagny Trails, Parc Regional Massif du Sud (Passerelles Trail, Mont Chocolat, and Abris sous Roches), Parc Regional des Appalaches (Mont Sugar Loaf and Montagne Grande Coulee), and Les Trois-Monts de Coleraine (La Traversee).
