Le Gros Pin Trail – Parc national des Grands-Jardins

About

In the early 20th century, this area was already known for its incredible fishing opportunities. Visitors were struck by the carpets of ground lichen and the exceptional Arctic vegetation at this latitude. They thus named it the Grands-Jardins-the Great Gardens. Today, Parc national des Grands-Jardins is still visited by anglers and also by hikers, campers, and vacationers. It has the privilege of forming one of the core zones of the Charlevoix Biosphere Reserve, a status granted to the region by UNESCO.

Pathway

Take a stroll under tall trees to the sound of popular leaves rustling, woodpecker cries and the murmur of the stream.

Departure point

Le Pied-des-Monts campground (route 381, km 19).
