Situated along the Beaupre coast, the canyon offers a day of moderate adventure in a woodland setting about 45 minutes from the city. The canyon’s gem, a narrow waterfall, tumbles and twists nearly 243 feet over boulders. Walk above the falls on three suspension bridges, glide across them on a zip line, or walk across the falls and on the rocks. With Via Ferrata you are tethered to a cable while you scramble across boulders and walk on cables across the water. Kids as young as 10 can try the smaller version.
In the Stone Stories area, geared to families with elementary-aged children, follow clues as you walk a woodland path dotted with sculptures. Whether or not you solve the puzzle, the forest walk is pleasant.
The canyon is open May to mid-October. Via Ferrata is available daily from the end of June through August and weekends only in September and October.
