This is a very nice walk and can be done all the way from town close to the St Germain hotel or you can drive to the Quai parking lot and walk the forest paths and the beach and quai. There is a small playground suitable for young children- I'd say under 6. We walked from the Germain hotel and it was a little less than a mile one-way. That walk takes you over the railroad tracks, past a cemetery and an airstrip (grassy field).

Great walk combining seashore and pine forest - lots of paths and close to the town of Baie St Paul and Hotel Germain

View of the river. Local small beach and woods on the side. Good for walking and relaxing. Free parking on the site.

It was just lovely to walk out there and sit in the absolute silence and take it all in. Someday we will return and take it in again.

I’m not sure how to describe our walk to the Quai but.... walk through town, past an old hospital?, across a field, past a cemetery, through the forest and viola arrive at the Quai. As you can tell we took the scenic route and it was worth it... then we returned to our b n b along the boring road way :)
Be adventuresome!

At the end of rue St-Anne you get to a parking space. From there, you can find a sandy beach, playground, kayak rental, boardwalk, a dock and waking trail. Very quiet. We were there at sunset. Not much going on. Only a few people to take it easy at the end of the day.

Positive:
- Nice, wide, clean, natural path
- Easy to find
- Really not busy
- A short walk that can be extended a bit through fields and a small patch of trees/forest
- Ending by the Magnificiently beautiful St-Lawrence - gorgeoous!
- Can walk out onto the dock made of rocks, not old rusty metal
- Plenty of birds
- View is awesome!

Negative:
- Signage when you get to the fork is not clear... You can go left, straight or right... Right is an extension that walks you around the forest to the shore, but you can take a left at some point into the forest through paths that give you the impression you're lost, but really its small and all paths lead to the shore... Straight is for the nun's cemetary, if you like that kind of thing, and left is a short way to the dock.
- Not anything else negative really... Except you need to walk there and walk back, 2 to 4 kilometers, about an hour.

Walking alley bordered by mature maple trees that takes you to the St-Laurence seaway. Beautifully maintained. We met several runners and strollers as well as nuns who still reside on Boisé du Quai.

First of all, the TA map is wrong. Take Rue St. Anne, through a residential area, towards the river. It ends at the quad. Google Maps has it correctly located. The area around the quai has nice views of the bay. Just east of the quai, the shoreline is a nice sandy beach, not suitable for swimming but very nice for a walk. Only a 100 meters or so from the quai is a very ice small woods with wide easy paths crisscrossing it. Great place for a stroll or for bird watching. A short distance down the beach is an old wreck ( nice photo op here)

We have a small dog and we walked these trails this afternoon. How incredibly peaceful and lovely. Great views of the river blended with the peace of a quiet walk and in the woods made a real mini vacation..
