  • We did a quick halt, for lack of time. But what a joy to walk the trail of the waterfalls! For an easy ride, there's good grimpettes! It is very well signposted however. The Discovery Center staff is friendly. Would have liked a kayak ride. When I saw a group, it was really like. For a snack, if you go through Stoneham, near the Park, it is an excellent Bakery: bakery at Pascal. Makes great sandwiches and what take cheese, sausages...

  • Fantastic, Beautiful Park. Friendly and helpful staff. Gorgeous river, excellent campground, EXCEPT for the shower... A single shower in the women bathroom, you have to come prepared with a loonie, and the system is very difficult to figure out... (Even with French being my first language!!!)
  • A beautiful place to spend a full day with numerous trail options available for hiking. I did one at kilometer 16 named "Les Loupes" which offered 2 breathtaking views overlooking the river. The service center is top-notch at 10km and offers free Wifi. Be aware that only the first 13km (out of 33) are paved roads, the remaining 20 are dirt.
  • We trekked the Cascades trail. There were still a lot of snow, but it is still very doable with little children (age 5). The view of the frozen river and the mountains in the background was magnificent. We highly enjoyed our time outdoors.
  • My favorite place to hike near Quebec city. It is only 30 minutes away from the city. However, driving in the national park could take around 15 to 20 minutes to get to the start of your trail. It has very narrow roads and is very dusty. Sentier Les Loups is a 4 hours hike up and down with around 30 to 45 minutes break at the top to eat.
  • Beautiful scenery. Amazing hiking and outdoor activities. Moose!!
