To go there from Mont-Carmel, you have to take Rg Saint-Flavien O from Rd 157; that road become Chemin du Rang des Grès after a right turn. The trailhead is near the entrance of the dam; you will see a wood bridge on your right (when you go down the road to the dam). You have to climb many stairs and go straight at the top. There's no signs for the trails but the main trail is along the river. The trail stop at a railway.

Il y a un grand stationnement juste à droite en haut de la côte qui descend au barrage. There is a large parking lot on the right at the top of the hill that goes down to the dam. Il est très surprenant d’avoir un aussi long sentier forestier aussi près de la ville. It’s very surprising to have such a long trail in the woods so close to town. De plus, le sentier est plutôt éprouvant avec ses nombreux ravins à franchir. Furthermore, the trail is quite an ordeal with it’s numerous ravines to cross. It really is my favorite 10 km around. C’est mon 10 km préféré aux alentours

Nous avons adoré la randonnée. Il y a des beaux sentiers . Ce que nous avons trouvé intéressant c’est qu’on peut traverser un court d’eau sur un tronc d’arbre et nous pouvons se tenir à une corde. Très intéressant et amusant ! Par contre, nous recommandons des souliers à crampons ou des bâtons de marche , car il y a souvent des pentes abruptes et ça peut être parfois glissant . :)

I recently discovered a passion for hiking and this trail is only a few minutes from my house. Have been there 5 times in the last 3 weeks. In winter at least, the trail is over 11 km long to the tain tracks (pont de fer). Nice place by the water for a break. People walk and snowshoe there. Trail crampons are highly recommended. Poles are not necessary. People DO walk their dogs off leash so please keep this in mind if you are afraid of dogs. Beautiful scenery.
The parking is up the hill from the dam on the Notre-Dame-du-Mont-Carmel side. Have fun.

A must do in the region!! Great panorama from the dam and the river, nice trail, well maintained and lots of creeks with beautiful little streams. May be steep at some places but the trail is really awesome for the view! Take me 1 hour and a half to go to the railway with some stops to relax and admire the place.
