The Centre de plein air de l'UQAM, on the banks of the Archambault River, is located in the municipality of Lac-Supérieur in the Laurentians — and its trails take you right to the base of Archambault Waterfall.
Don't forget your bathing suit!
For $7 per car, you can spend the day walking around the waterfall, hiking — the park has a network of 25 kilometres of trails for various levels — and eating at the picnic area.
However, groups of 10 people or more must reserve 24 hours in advance and pay a $30 fee.
The site is open to the public every day from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. But be careful when swimming, as it is an unsupervised area.
