The easiest path, 3.7 km with a well-marked path and lots of stairs, provides wonderful views of waterfalls and rapids. Count on spending 2 hours.

This privately owned and maintained parc of hiking trails is simply fabulous. We did several trails while there and the view sof the gorge, maintainance of the paths and singage were excellent and rivalled anything SEPAQ has to offer. WELL worth a detour and visit.

Exceptionally well maintained hiking trails to canyon and waterfalls. Throughout the hike there are wooden steps and platforms that overlook the canyon and waterfalls. Beyond the falls the river widens because of the dam. Very peaceful. Bring bug spray for this area as there are...More

Welcoming information center, with snowshoe and xc-ski rental. Amazing snowshoe trails, especially the more intensive Passe du Matelot.

When I have international visitors, I'd love to take them on this hike in Bec-Scie. It's a short (3 mile) hike which takes about 1 hour with beautiful views along the way. To me, it's a summary of Québec nature, in an hour. You can...More

Excellent hiking through the canyon and along by the river, especially during autumn. Good value at $3.75 per person, particularly if you want a longer hike - they give you a ticket which you need to return on exit so that they know you have...More

This trail is absolutely gorgeous, and very easy, even for our 10-year-old. After a beautiful hike through woods, you come to a series of glorious waterfalls that result in amazing rainbows, with several lookouts to sit and enjoy the cool mist.

I have only visited the area once and we had the use of a car. I suspect that you would need to take a taxi if a tour is not available.

I have no medical knowledge, but this would depend on your ankle strength and flexibility and your comfort with lots of stairs. The short (3.7 km) trail is an easy hike, as opposed to a walk, in that the path has embedded... More

Hi, That is a good question. It is about 10km between the ferry dock and Bec Scie. It is a straight shot, but not something you'd walk and you probably won't have a bike. I don't think there is Uber in Saguenay, but... More
