Fall colours in Quebec’s regional parks

After the frenzy of summer, fall is an invitation to enjoy calmer activities and contemplation. As the days grow shorter, the foliage changes colour and creates a spectacular setting. Offering a total of about 2,000 km2 of exceptional natural spaces, Quebec's Regional Parks (PaRQ) are ideal places where you can make the most of the season. Here are some suggestions of places to go to admire the fall colours!

Reach the top of the mountain and enjoy the view

Parc régional du Mont-Ham in the Eastern Townships is known for its hiking trails, its peak and spectacular 360-degree view and its scenery of forests and agricultural lands. Suitable for all ages or levels of fitness, this mountain is a joy to climb.

If you are planning a stay in the Gaspésie region, be sure to visit the Parc régional du Mont-Saint-Joseph, an exceptional area offering hiking and mountain biking trails, as well as a climbing wall. Luxurious ready-to-camp units in a geodome can be found at the summit, as well as a breathtaking view of the Baie des Chaleurs.

Admire fall colours around the waterfalls and canyons

In the Québec City area, the spectacular Sainte-Anne Canyon features a 74-metre-tall waterfall, a mini canyon and a giant pothole. Walk across the three suspension bridges, fly over the chasm at 50 km/h on the AirCANYON and solve the riddles of the Roc-Ambolesque rally. A destination for the whole family, including four-legged members!

In Lanaudière, the Parc régional des chutes Monte-à-peine-et-des-Dalles, bordered by the L'Assomption River, is a magnificent place to recharge your batteries. In addition to hiking trails, you’ll find camping and picnic areas, footbridges, lookouts and a nature interpretation trail.

A new way to have family fun

The Centre-du-Québec region invites you to explore the superb Parc régional des Grandes-Coulées. It offers two networks of trails as well as numerous activities, including dogsledding, obstacle courses and bird-watching. Dogs on a leash are allowed in the park.

In Wakefield, in the heart of the Outaouais region, the Éco-Odyssée Nature Park invites you to discover the beaver's habitat in an impressive water maze composed of 64 intersections spread over 6 km. Whether you choose to explore by pedal boat, canoe or paddleboard, you’re sure to be captivated by the amazing landscape surrounding this unique park, decorated in fall colours!
