Here, the trail heads northeast through the Reserve Faunique de Matane and then on to Mount Logan in the western portion of the Parc de la Gaspésie. The trail then turns eastward, continuing across Mont Albert and Mont Jacques Cartier and finally along the legendary cliffs of Cap Gaspé in Forillon National Park, where it ends at Shiphead.
