Description 

A provincial park, the Parc National des Grands-Jardins is a fabulous area of granite domes a la Tuolumne Meadows. There aren't as many domes, but the climbing is excellent and the setting is superb.

Last chance to pickup food and beverages is in St-Urbain, the welcome center does not have any drinkable water (unles you pay for overpriced bottles).
There is some tap water at the camping on your left just as you enter the park.

Le Dôme is actually outside the parc so you don't need to pay the SEPAQ fees but the trail is maintained by La Traversé de Charlevoix which normally requires a daily contribution.

Un Parc Provincial faisant parti du réseau de la SEPAQ, le Parc National des Grands Jardins est un superbe terrain de jeux parsemé de dômes de granites style Tuolumne Meadows. Les dômes ne sont pas aussi nombreux mais l'escalade et les vues sont majestueuses.

La dernière chance de ramasser de la nourriture est au marché à St-Urbain. Le Chalet de bienvenu du parc n'a pas d'eau courante potable alors les seuls endroits à faire le plei d'eau est à St-Urbain ou, si il est ouvert, le camping à votre gauche lorsque vous rentrez dans le Parc.

Le Dôme ne fait pas parti de la SEPAQ donc il n'est pas nécessaire de débourser de l'argent au Chalet pour y grimper mais la petite section du sentier est entretenu par La Traversé de Charlevoix qui requiert normalement une contribution journalière
