A very pleasant visit in a well marked pathway along the canyon des portes de l'enfer. We hit it in June where we were eaten by voracious mosquitoes in the parking lot but it somehow subsided to a bearable level when moving towards the waterfalls...More

Spent several hours here hiking both trails offered. Absolutely beautiful. Wear good footwear. Bring water and a snack. Lots of stairs and some some rugged terrain to walk on if you take the 5 km trail but worth every step. Takes about 2 to 3...More

We really enjoyed the quality of the trails and the level of difficulty. Sights are incredible and the trails are very well maintained. The roads to get there are bumpy and tiresome but worth it.

Nice trails, along (and down) the canyon. You could spend the full day hiking them, if you wanted to. Otherwise you can drive your car between the two main sites. If you go there with younger kids, you must get magic wands for the "Portes...More

Nice trails, wonderful suspension bridge, good activities for the kids. We had a wonderful day. The only (minor) downside would be mosquitoes (avoid June).

This is a great venue to visit for a great short 5KM hike and a smaller 2KM hike. Well marked boardwalks along a very scenic canyon, a suspension bridge and 300 steps to the canyon floor. Well maintained, great for families and kids. Highly recommended...More
