Are you adventurous? Get on your quad or your snowmobile for an unforgettable journey: Parent is a gateway to many outfitters. It is the farthest populated area of Haute-Mauricie from downtown La Tuque. It is also a service point for moto sports fans. Near the Gouin Reservoir, Parent is a rural oasis in the middle of the vast forest area of La Tuque. For a complete change of scenery, climb the Radar Mountain, where you’ll admire nature as far as the eye can see, or bring your canoe to descend the Bazin River, where you’ll find the remains of a disused dam.
From La Tuque, you’ll have to take the forest road R-0450 (10) for almost 280 km (about 3 or 3.5 hours). However, during summer and after the verification of the road, it is possible to take the forest road R-0461 (25) from La Tuque for almost 190 km (about 2.5 hours).
Then, to get Clova from Parent, continue for about 95 km.
