Jacques Cartier is the tallest mountain in the southern part of Québec and is situated in the Mc Gerrigle's range in the Gaspésie national park. A trail leads to its summit (part of the International Appalachian trail) where there is an observation tower, it is even possible in very clear conditions to see the north coast as well as Anticosti island. Also this mountain is a good place to view cariboos witch are unique to this region and different from those found in northern regions of North America. This mountain was probably first climbed when it was called Botanist's dome, in 1923 when it was climbed by Brother Marie Victorin and a group of american botanist.
