Marquette & Mingan: The 2 areas of the city
You might hear people talking about two different areas. You should know that the western or Mingan area are two synonyms referring to the former town of Hauterive (merged with Baie-Comeau in the 1980s) and are located between the Amédée and Manicouagan Rivers. The eastern or Marquette area refers to the original city of Baie-Comeau, closer to the river.
Cycling Paths & Hiking
Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the network of cycling paths and the Embrun hiking trail map, which links the two sectors and Pointe Saint-Gilles. Get ready for an unforgettable vacation!
City Map & Trails
We’ll take the time to get there, but we don’t know the way.
It couldn’t be easier!
From Quebec: go straight onto the 138 until you reach your destination.
Take route 138 eastbound for about 3 hours to the Baie-Sainte-Catherine-Tadoussac ferry (it’s free, no worries!).
Once you exit the ferry, continue driving on the 138 for another 200 km and enjoy looking at the spectacular scenery. Cross the bridge over the Manicouagan River and you’re there! Welcome to Baie-Comeau!
From the south shore of the St. Lawrence River: be swayed by the waves.
Go to the Matane ferry wharf in the direction of Baie-Comeau (fees apply).
Cross the river on the F.-A. Gauthier and look out as far as the eye can see and breathe in the salty air. If the season allows, you might even see the dorsal fin of a rorqual!
Once in Baie-Comeau, you’ll be less than one minute from downtown Place La Salle and only a few steps away from the Tourist Information Office located in front of the marina. Come in and say hello!
Please note that you can cross the river to Godbout from Matane (you will then have to drive about one hour on the 138 westbound to arrive in Baie-Comeau).
From Saguenay: bypass the ferry.
Couldn’t be easier: only 315 km and only one intersection! Follow route 172 East for 120 km until the junction with Road 138. Then, turn left heading east on Road 138 and follow it until you reach the bridge over the Manicouagan River... and voila Baie-Comeau!
