You may be thinking that hikes are only good in the summer, but they're just as magnificent in autumn.

And while many hikes in Quebec have a spectacular view waiting for you at the end, in the fall, the hike, itself, is an incredible sight, with the changing leaves and that certain something in the air.

Whether you're looking for something close by or a real escape from the city, there are hikes all over the province.

Plus, the whole province seems to become magic when the leaves seem to change.
