Skyline Professional Review and Guide
"The relatively easy Skyline Trail, leading to a steep headland cliff with dramatic views overlooking the Gulf of St. Lawrence, is one of the most popular day hikes in the park. Because of this trail’s popularity, extensive boardwalks were built near the headland in 1998 by Les Amis du Plein Air, a non-profit society of friends of the national park, to reduce the damage to fragile plants from the many walkers and to protect some of the most vulnerable sites from human intrusion. Interpretive panels explaining the situation are located where the trail emerges from the vegetation. Please respect the warnings and limit your access to the areas indicated."
