Tourisme Charlevoix

Louise-Gasnier Trail


Named in memory of Louise Gasnier – wife of Claude Bouchard (known as the short Claude), First Bouchard of Petite-Rivière-Saint-François – it links the Gabrielle-Roy-Est and Gabrielle-Roy-Ouest trails. Easy, it offers a few lookouts, but two superb suspended gateways spanning the Du Sault River on two occasions, are its most remarkable attractions. If their size is modest, the nature will however take your breath away. In addition, the path is dotted with long gateways on stilts in the wetland, bridges, belvederes, halts and rest areas.


Access West: At km 437 of route 138, take du Fief road (850 m) and turn right on de l’Étendard Street. The parking lot, a halt and information shelter are nearby. Caution: the parking lot is not always plowed.

Access East: At the junction of route 138, 441.5 km and Principal road. 4-season parking, with information shelter and pergola.

Access Km 3.1 of the trail: After du Fief road, continue for 2.5 km on route 138 direction East up to km 439.4. On the right, there are a parking lot, information shelter, halt and lookout. Caution: the parking lot is not plowed in winter.

It is always important to get information from the trail manager before going hiking.
