Totalling just over three kilometres, the eight short hiking trails in the Parc régional de la rivière Mitis invite you to observe plant life and various bird species. Take advantage of your fall hike to climb the lookout, from where you can see as far as the Côte-Nord region. The park also boasts various ecosystems, a marsh and a forest, as well as a long beach on the edge of Baie de Mitis, where you can stroll and enjoy the exceptional view of the river. Who knows, you might even spot a seal!
