The Canyon des Portes de l'Enfer (hell's gate canyon) in Saint-Narcisse-de-Rimouski begins with the Grand Sault waterfall and stretches nearly five miles between steep and narrow rock walls up to 90 metres high. A network of easy-to-intermediate...more
A very pleasant visit in a well marked pathway along the canyon des portes de l'enfer.

Thank you for yours commentaries and have a nice day !
This park/site is about a 20-30 drive from downtown Rimouski and is well worth the stop. There are several walks to do but our time was a bit limited so we only did two:

If you go there with younger kids, you must get magic wands for the "Portes...More
