Sept isles hills- Scary?

Recommended Posts

Planning a trip to Sept Isles from the ferry at Godbout. Heard that there are some really steep hills . How steep are they?  Would there be problems if fresh snow or icy spots?  How to prepare? Call ahead?  Avoid if  bad weather?

 

Thanks, Teamgreen

The hills are all between Godbout and Baie Comeau, it is smooth from the ferry east. The hills really are not that bad but caution should be taken on that section. Extra caution should be taken if it were icy.

Yes, you do not want to miss a corner on these hills, pay attention, keep right, and enjoy it. Maybe some folks who are afraid of heights and high bridges could get a little nervous but I think it is doable if you be careful, you will build your confidence, and you want to see this place, close to Gaspe beauty!!

Thanks for all the replies.  Looks like we are heading to Matane to take the ferry to Godbout so will miss those  hills. We are heading to the Havre St Pierre with good luck and weather with us.

The hills are very much fun! A big reason to visit the area.

Don't worry about missing the hills going up.....you have to come back!

Took the ferry today to godbout an then on to sept isle. Although it was somewhat warm the snow was grippy  and groomed most all the way . Probably 40-50 miles of some really great open running.  Staying at comfort Inn and heading to Havre st pirrelevant tommorow. Bought some gas cans for the 102 mile run.

How did we miss you? We parked up front on the ferry. We were looking for you. 

We will be going the same way in the AM. There are two spots to get gas on the way to HSP.

We are here at the same hotel.
