Description

Two agglomerations of pure granite boulders.

Approach

Off road Qc-116, take rue Fortier until it becomes Chemin Ozias-Leduc. To your left is rue Cardinal. The boulders are at the end of the road.

Parking on residential streets requires a permit. Rue Montcalm does not. From that street it's a 10 minutes walk to the boulders.
