We went for a 2 hours hike "Mont Saint Alban" which was nice. The sign at the beginning of the trail is not reassuring though: "make noise"... in fact Parc Forillon is well a niche for Porkepikes and bears. We had a long drive that day, so we only were able to enjoy this short hike which was very nice... More

We stayed at Forillon for 4 nights - 1 night at Des Rosiers, 2 nights at Petit Gaspe and 1 night at Cap Bon Ami. We originally planned to spend two nights in the backcountry or 'wilderness camping' on the Les Cretes trail but after a bunch of confusion/disorganization in terms of where to get a backcountry campsite permit and...

Beautiful park!! We spent a few days here (staying in area motels) and enjoyed hiking, whale watching and kayaking! Some beautiful look outs with breath taking views!

In the spring this little waterfall, simply known as "La Chute" is well worth the short hike, just about 1Km. Apparently in the summer it dries up to only a trickle, so it probably wouldn't be so worth while. It is an easy approach, but there are lots of steps to climb on the way back!

Definitely worth stopping and walking down to the beach at the visitors centre to walk along the new boardwalk. Spectacular views.

Cap Bon Ami - get up early and catch the sun warming the coast. Strong legs - hike up to the observation tower above, well worth the exericise. History - check the old fishing settlement on the south end of the park. One can stay in a "yurt" in the park if you book ahead, or make a home base... More

Great hike up to the top of Mt. Alban, absolutely view to beat all others. A 283 meter hike on a 2 kilometer trail so it was steep in places and rocky in a few. Lots of bear scat but didn't see any. If you fit go for it you'll be glad you did.

We recently stayed 3 nights at Cap Bon Ami campground. We were a little disappointed that our site (24) did not have any view of the Gulf as there is a fence and shrub growth preventing the view. On the plus side I guess the small trees and shrub help to offer some protection from winds. Site 52 (last site)... More

We stayed in the park for 3 nights in a yurt - "pret a camping". (Rented from Les Petites Maisons du camp). The yurt was perfect for us as we flew from NYC and did not have to carry a tent etc. It is fully equipped and you only have to bring a towel. This park is beautiful. It is... More
