Cycling is a good way to explore the park because it gives you a chance to observe nature from a different perspective. Visitors may bike along the path leading to Penouille Beach and along minor roads in the park (north and south areas), or they can take the Le Portage trail. Mountain bikers may also take the La Vallée trail as well as the gravel road leading to Cap-Gaspé. Cycling is prohibited on all other trails. Bike rentals at the Recreation Centre from June 15 to August 25 2013, from 9 am to 6 pm. Information: (418) 892-5058
