Sentier Bras-du-Nord

From Accueil Shannahan to Delaney yurt

This section of Bras-du-Nord pathway is a favorite among hikers, as it offers a very diverse experience. Between the peaceful trail that follows the river until Delaney fall and the steep hill that leads to one of the most spectacular viewpoints of the Valley, hikers go through a maze of different sceneries.

Plan your trip

Outside the opening hours of Accueil Cantin and Accueil Shannahan, we ask hikers to pay the right of access at our main welcome point (Roquemont).

A taxi service is available.

** In winter, several factors can influence your progression. Sometimes it can be difficult to accurately predict the rate of progression. On average, the increase will be about 2 or 3 km/h. However, after a heavy snowfall, your progress could be as low as 0.5 km/h!


Some trail sections can be interesting alternatives to the initial trip!

The Raccourci:

  • 150 meters
  • An alternative to km 3 of Bras-du-Nord trail, from Accueil Shannahan.
  • This trail climbs directly up to Yurt Delaney’s belvedere, instead of going by Delaney Fall.
