Why choose this trail?

The Canyon des Portes de l’Enfer (hell’s gate canyon) in Saint-Narcisse-de-Rimouski begins with the Grand Sault waterfall and stretches nearly five miles between steep and narrow rock walls up to 90 metres high. A network of easy-to-intermediate hiking trails, from 1 to 14 kilometres, leads to stunning panoramic views and a 63 meters high suspended footbridge, the highest in Quebec. Experience the descent to hell’s gate: 300 steps leading down to the Rivière Rimouski and back up again! At the far end of the trail system is the Chaud waterfall, another 20 meters cascade. A restaurant, a one-star campground and an 8.5 kilometers bike path are also available for visitors to this magnificent natural site.

Nice nature hike. Roughly $40 for a family of 4 to walk the trails. The suspension bridge was a bit of a thrill for some. Lots of bush walking and stairs to climb up and down the Canyon.
