At the shore of the Saint Lawrence River in Nicolet, Quebec, is a boardwalk trail that offers spectacular views through the forest and across the marsh of the local Parc écomaritime de l'Anse-du-Port.

The 710-metre trail leads to a 12.3-metre lookout tower, where, from the top, it looks like the boardwalk stretches endlessly through nature.
