We did an amazing trek in the Niagara Glen nature park. It offers walking trials were there were once waterfalls, some 8,000 years ago! In the park we also visited the butterfly conservatory, which was really nice.
Across the valley you’ll find lots of walking trails that leads to different waterfalls, passing beautiful wooden bridges. I recommend you’ll try the trail to Picot waterfall, near the town of Saint André. It’s a nice circular route, not too long, and it passes by beautiful terraced waterfalls.
Hell's Gate Canyon (English name) - We went on a 30 Km trek from Hells Gate Canyon to Rimouski River. The trail runs in the deep a narrow canyon, formed from the power and velocity of the water. The trail passes by beautiful waterfalls, and we found it more impressive than Canyon Sainte Anne.
Gaspésie Park is like a real heaven for trek lovers; unfortunately for, heavens gates were closed due to the bad weather… The park includes the Chik-Chok mountain range, but it’s open for visitors only till the end of September. Since 2 thirds of the park were out of bounds, we climbed up Olivine Mountain. The walking train was very nice, not too long, and it reaches all the way to the summit. But again, if you’ll come at the right season, you’ll find a verity of other, more attractive trails in the park.
You shouldn’t miss out on this wonderful park. It’s a magical place, with lots of easy walking trails, passing along side small bays, surrounded by rocky hills and gorgeous mountain picks, as well as a seals reservation. You can see the seal on the high tides from Cape Caribou, and if you arrived on the low tide and missed them – don’t worry: you can also catch them on the bird reservation on Percé Rock, where they swim peacefully in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.
We visited Bic Park twice: once going up to Gaspe and once going down. The first time the tide was high, so we spent some time watching the seals. The second time the tide was low, and we took a nice stroll through the park. both times we had a great day.
There are a lot of walking trails in Forillon, so here is a short list:
