This loop is a part of National Hiking Trail - Jacques Buteux segment. Follow J1 thru J7 (blue markers), trails names are : La Falaise (steep for the first part, you walk along the cliff and you'll see many lookouts with amazing view on the St-Maurice River), then Le Torrent (along a beautiful mountain stream and waterfalls) and easy last part Les Bénévoles. Trail is well-maintained and well-marked.

Hike that trail many times, maybe the best in the area. Gorgeous views, took me about 1hr40min for the entire loop with few stops to admire the landscape. A must-do!
