Get the most out the park’s trails by planning and preparing for every hike, whether you’re out for 30 minutes or the whole day:


  • Always check the length and other aspects of your trail, as well as the duration of your hike before you set out. Choose a trail that YOU can handle. Topographical maps are available for purchase at the reception centres and toll kiosks.

  • Tell someone where you’re going and what time you expect to be back.

  • Bring a snack and enough water, even if your hike is short. The tap water in park service buildings is safe to drink unless otherwise noted.

  • Consider comfort and safety when you choose what to pack. A sweater and windbreaker are generally a good idea at Forillon. We recommend footwear with a good grip and lots of support.

  • For your own safety, stay on the trails and behind fences and follow any posted instructions (trail closed, steep cliffs, risk of rockslide, and so on).


Specific cycling tips:

  • The use of a bike helmet is strongly recommended.
  • Travel in single file on the park’s secondary roads.
  • Cyclists must continue to keep their eyes on the road: mountain biking trails are also used by hikers and park vehicles.
