U have to do a 2.8 km trail to get to the waterfall but the trail is mostly all flat and linear so no climbing! It was a smooth hike and the view was worth it

Discover the Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean

The Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean  is the third largest administrative region in Quebec, known for its  wonderful  green landscapes. Geographically it  is located to the south,  on the north shore of the St. Lawrence fleuve.

Nature, however, is not the only attraction of Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean. The regionalso famousforthe historic village of Val-Jalbert. It is a ghost town,  located near Lac-Saint-Jean and was founded in 1901 by Damase Jalbert, the owner of a pulp mill.

Today the city is a tourist attraction that will allow you to take a step back in time, visiting the period wooden houses, the post office, the convent-school and much more!
