Drive on a dirt road that seems to last forever just to come to a gravel pit. Now where do you go?? Just look a little further and you will see a sign for the walkway and falls. From there it is about 400 meter...More

A nice place where you can relax and swim in crystal clear water but it's getting too touristy. A lot of families around that place where you can't find any peace. Still worth to see if you are passing by but if you are in...More

Very beautiful place with familiarly atmosphere. Some hiking to get to the place is required. Water is a little cold but in hot day is absolutely possible to swim in without any extra-protecting clothing. Good place to lie on the beach of stones. Dogs allowed....More

We parked all the way at the end of Chemin des Carrières and followed the directions to the Chutes. It is a 10 min walk, with steep stairs. The water is a bit cold but worth the view!

This place is close to percé. The directions on here are correct. Follow the paved road until it turns into a dirt road and through the gravel pit. Park at the end and follow the trail to the falls. 10-15 minute walk from the parking...More

My wife wanted to see this place after speaking about it with someone (local) in Perce - we had not heard of it before that. It was not particularly easy to find because the signs were not large. Once we found the road it required...More
