Les Florent Trail


Named in memory of Mr. Florent Côté, who was farming parcels of land atop the Montagne des Florent, and, to do so, had to walk on a small path at the base of the mountain. Linking Baie-Saint-Paul to Saint-Urbain, in the backcountry, stretching over 18.2 km, it features 7 accesses allowing the hiker the pleasure to create his own itinerary. Different lookouts along the course offer breathtaking views of du Gouffre valley and the town of Baie-Saint-Paul with, in the backdrop, the majestic St. Lawrence River. A small observation tower reveals a view of the mountains to the west. Direction of Saint-Urbain, a former open pit mine site, the village and mountains of des Grands-Jardins national park are sure to catch your eyes.
