Sentier des Caps de Charlevoix

2, rue Leclerc
Saint-Tite-des-Caps
QC, G0A 4J0

Located at the edge of the Charlevoix region, Sentier des Caps offers thrilling excursions that lead to different points that afford a stunning view of the St. Lawrence River and Laurentian Mountains.

Two popular natural sectors offer short and long hikes for a memorable excursion into the wilderness. In the summer, you can explore a primeval forest with many species of trees. At night, you can sleep in a cabin or at a campsite. Your vehicle (and baggage) will be brought to your point of arrival for you. In the winter, strap on snowshoes to explore the forest wrapped in a white cloak where, in the distance, you can spot the St. Lawrence River glittering in the sunlight. Beginners and experts alike will appreciate the possibilities for outdoor adventure along the many trails. No equipment? No problem! Everything you need can be rented onsite.
