Well known as the gateway to some great trails in the Sandilands Provincial Forest, this village also offers a scenic running trail through Tetrault Park on the east side of town. For early risers, make this a Saturday morning run before breakfast at the La Broquerie Hotel. Or for a more leisurely approach, this route follows parts of the La Broquerie Historical Trail with a number of interpretive signs that detail the history of the community.
Driving & Parking
Coming from Steinbach on highway #52, turn left on the #302 into town. Drive about 400 meters, cross the tracks, and park at Co-op on the right.
Head south-east along Rue Gauthier parallel to the train tracks, then take the first left on Simard and follow it past the Rural Municipality office. Just past the office, turn left onto the trail. The route will take you through Tetrault park, over the bridge, and onto Quintro Road. Follow this east, then north to join road 36 North, and follow that back west toward town. This joins highway #302, so keep left on the gravel and watch for traffic. Cross the bridge and head south back into town. After about 300 meters, before the first house, turn right onto a trail beside the field that will come out at Balcaen Bay. The route then takes you through some of the residential area and shortly back to Co-op.
