This summer has been dedicated to rediscovering the beauty of our province and, as someone who loves to travel, I can assure you that Quebec is a place that has something to offer to everyone, especially if you like to explore the beauty. that nature has to offer. With so many fabulous parks in the province, it’s hard to choose one to visit, but Forillon National Park located in GaspÃ© is at the top of my list.
Located at the tip of the peninsula, the park is full of hiking trails.

One of the easiest is also one of the most spectacular, taking you up to a 17-meter-high waterfall.
The La Chute hike will give you phenomenal views without the hustle and bustle of a multi-hour hike.
There are plenty of opportunities to spot wildlife and admire the woods, including sugar bushes and cedars, along the 1.1-kilometer-long moderate-level trail.
One of Parks Canada’s famous red Adirondack chairs also awaits you at the end, so you can relax while taking in the views at the end of the trip.
And, best of all, the park is pet-friendly, which means you can take your four-legged best friend on the lovely trip as long as they’re on a leash.
The biggest obstacle, according to Parks Canada, are the steep stairs along the way, so beware.
The GaspÃ© tourism web page indicates that there is a picnic area, gazebo and campground nearby for those who wish to spend more time on the site.
According to Tourisme GaspÃ©sie, the La Chute trail is open every year from June to October.
So, slip on your shoes, pack some snacks, grab your dog, and go on an easy, immersive nature adventure.
