The only linear 100 miles in Quebec. Departure from the beautiful city of Baie-Saint-Paul. The first portion of the course follows St. Lawrence River and takes the La Baie, Gabrielle Roy East, Louise-Gasnier and Gabrielle Roy West trails to Mount Liguori. Then, the course follows almost entirely the Sentier des Caps de Charlevoix until the village of Saint-Tite-des-Caps. From this point, participants cross the Dalle Humide trail, which bears witness to the era of the log drivers. Joining the canyon of the Sainte-Anne River, the infamous Mestachibo trail awaits the participants until the majestic Jean-Larose Falls. This is followed by the colossal Mont-Sainte-Anne (MSA), which must be climbed almost twice. The last 40 kilometers will take place north of the mountain on the edge of the immense Laurentian mountainous terrain until the return to the South base of the MSA.
