  • Off-season hike on the SIA-QC


    As you probably know, the IAT-QC hiking season runs from June 24 until Thanksgiving. But to answer the questions of many hikers, here is the detailed information about the off-season hike.

    After Thanksgiving, the trail is considered closed due to a variety of factors such as moose hunting, national park closures, and varying weather conditions (early snowfall on the highest peaks); so for these reasons we can no longer practice the long hike. But under certain conditions, it is possible to circulate in certain sectors of the SIA-QC. For more information, please contact the IAT-QC office at 418-560-4642 or In addition, sector managers may have more specific information, they can also be contacted. Our offices are open from Monday to Friday from 9 am to 4 pm during the hiking season and once a week out of season.

    Among the conditions, we ask the hikers to provide us with a report on the state of the trail in addition to making the accommodation reservations at the office of the IAT-QC. It should also be noted that IAT-QC is relieved of any responsibility towards hikers.
