31-Jul-2011 -- When I first planned my vacation in the Parc National de la Gaspésie, I was looking forward to visiting this confluence point, because the previous visit was in winter, 8 years ago. Because my visit was in mid-summer, it was almost like a 'virgin' confluence point.
Unfortunately, however, I wasn't able to reach the confluence point; I couldn't get closer than 266 metres. I started from the valley below - about 1 km from the point - and clamored up a series of overgrown snowmobile trails, then across streams, through thick forest and up a steep, boulder-strewn hillside (while being attacked by hordes of ravenous insects), until the terrain became too difficult for me to continue.
If I had realized beforehand how high up on the slope the confluence point was, I would have tried to approach it from the top of the ridge - which is what (I think) the previous visitors did. However, it's not clear to me how best to get to the top of the ridge; perhaps this is something that's easier done in winter than in summer?
