Overview
More
A hiking hotspot, Parc national de la Gaspésie gives visitors access to an extraordinary mountain environment. The Chic-Chocs and McGerrigle Mountains cross the park. Among them, Mont Jacques Cartier is the second highest peak in Québec. The altitude of these mountains deeply influences the climate that moulds the landscape and creates a diversity of species unique to Québec, and even the world. Arctic-alpine plants and tundra landscapes form a habitat for a herd of woodland caribou, the last representatives of this species south of the St. Lawrence.

I was here yesterday and hiked Mt. Ernest Laforce. It was sublime and such stillness! Loved it. The park reminds me of the Adirondacks but with much better trail maintenance. Staff friendly and helpful .This is a provincial park not federal. Go!

We drove up to the visitors center with stops along the way to look at the fall foliage on the mountains. We also walked for a short distance along a little river. There are many trails, but we didn't have time for a long hike.
