Did you know that maple syrup is the oldest agricultural product in Quebec? It all began with the native Indians who called it “Sweet Water.” When spring returned and the maple sap was running the Indians offered the boiled thickened syrup as a sacrifice to the Great Spirit. “Sugaring off” was largely a woman’s function in Iroquois communities. The men cut notches into tree trunks and small wooden troughs were stuck into the bark. In the early stages of European colonization the natives showed the arriving colonists how to tap the trunks of maple trees during the early spring.

The view from the summit of Mount Pinacle offers an absolutely breathtaking panorama of Lake Lyster and the entire region. Mount Pinacle is the main attraction in Coaticook's Harold F. Baldwin Park, in Baldwin's Mills, which includes a network of walking trails totaling 7.9 km, and which is a popular site for rock climbing, where sheer cliffs provide thrills for practitioners of that sport.
