11 – Montérégie

General Information:

On the shore of the Gulf is the fertile Saint-Lawrence River Valley. To the east we also find the Richelieu River Valley. The terrain is moderately rugged to the Southwest, near the American border. The Northwest part of the region is bordered by the Saint-Lawrence to the south and the Ottawa River to the north. A large proportion of the trails are in the plain. There is plenty of woodland, mostly deciduous, and in particular, maple bush. The part located between Châteauguay and Boucherville immediately to the south of Montreal is very densely populated.
