Lookout overlooking the Chute à Philomène waterfall in Saint-Alexandre-des-Lacs
In 2019, the Matapédia ATV Club inaugurated a highly original lookout point. Shaped like the bow of a boat, the lookout extends beyond a cliff, offering a breathtaking view of a river, the Chute à Philomène waterfall and the surrounding mountains. Will you be brave enough to venture across its grated floor to admire the precipice beneath your feet?
