Stroll a short loop trail (193 m) surrounded by shady green trees to reach the viewpoint overlooking what used to be the Melanson Settlement, a close-knit community of families and neighbours farming together on the dykeland. Look down to the rivière Dauphin (Annapolis River) and the marais de Saint-Charles (Queen Anne Marshe). See original artwork on interpretive panels which explain more of the importance of this place and of the life that was once lived here.
