Shawinigan, Quebec Map

around 2hr trail round trip, lots of stairs for easy climbing.very popular in october for fall colours

Tree tree tree. Only one nice view and spot to rest.

Great ride, moderate difficulty, loop

Beautiful view of the falls. Lots of graffiti on the rock. Trails could be marked better.

The trail was really cool but there was kind of a lot a people.

Amazingly boring and pointless trail with zero views. Could walk in the forest near my home instead of driving four hours to the park.

Sympatique, sans plus.

Trail’s nice! Took me 4 hours to make it with lunch time. Not really some good point of observation through the trail though.

Probably a good one to do, but when we arrived they told us it’s close for all summer !

Nice trail (avg time : 3-4hrs) but way too many people at the time I went.

Realy liked that trail. There is a very good viewpoint in the first half of it. wich involve a good climb to get to. After that, the trail goes much more flat. Realy enjoyed the part with the little river in the wood.

My girlfriend and I had a great hike on this trail. It's definitely not 'difficult'. We finished it in 3 hours; stopped quite a few times to get wet!! Absolutely beautiful hike in autumn!

Not sure why this trail is labeled as 'hard', since there's only one rather short steep section; the rest is quite flat and easy. Lots of mushrooms and wildflowers in the forest.

Well marked trail with enough ups and downs to get some exercise. Beautiful views during the first half. It's pretty crowded, though. Also, be prepared for a muddy, slippery trail.

Nice trail, goes up and down a few times, clear indications

Fantastic hike with great view points along the way.
The spots on the top of the lakes are really worth it.
Be cautious to have mosquitos repellent depending when you plan this hike.
The end of the trail can be very muddy and includes a lot of up and downs for which it is better to keep some energy!
I've done it twice already and would be pleased to go there again!

Beautiful hike mainly through forest, with some moderate climbs and descents. Fantastic viewpoints along the way. Took me 6 hours, including 1 hour or so taking pictures.

Trail is well groomed and very well marked as trail #15 from start to finish. Maps and more info can be downloaded at the park's website.
