Sentier des Falaises

A main attraction, this pathway is a definite classic for hikers. The steep cliff features stairs made of rocks, a true work of art created by mountain climbers that takes you from breath taking spots to another until the top. Once on the mountain top, the trail becomes a bit more tame and leads to Falaises shelter, where you can watch Delaney Fall from the other side. On Cap Bédard, plains and small valleys reach the St-Lawrence River and the South Shore.
