SERVICE DISRPTION - November 1, 2023 - The gate at the bottom of the road that leads to trailhead and washrooms are now closed for the season.
The most spectacular scenic feature is the Gorge itself, where the Amable du Fond flows between steep rock walls in a dramatic series of rapids and waterfalls. Below the Gorge, the river widens and winds its way through a cluster of islands before flowing into Smith Lake. A self-guided 1.9 km interpretive trail details the natural and human history of the area, including a log slide and dam built on the property in the 1870s for the Mackey Lumber Company. A logger's cabin, found along the trail, was reconstructed in 1989. Please note the cabin is for day use only - overnight stays and campfires are not permitted.
