Which road/Coast or 198 from Gaspe?

Headed to Gaspe next spring. Would you take the coast road to matane or use 198? Or should I take the time to do both?

Thanks/Merci.

Have not done 198 but coast is amazing. It gets my vote. Was there this June.

The whole place is amazing. Inland is good as well. Spend a few days up there and do inland and coast roads. You could go about halfway then shoot inland than go around the other side on the coast and than shoot inland and go back to the coast. Doing that you wouldn't pass over the same roads. Too lazy to look up the route numbers but if you have a map I think you can see what I'm talking about. There aren't that many roads in Gaspe!

I'm just back from a trip to Gaspe - sadly by van, not bike. The north coast beyond Saint Anne-des-Monts is excellent. St. Lawrence on one side, huge cliffs on the other for most of the way, with a few villages scattered in the bays.

299 from New Richmond through the Chic-Choc mountains back to Saint Anne-des-Monts follows the Cascapédia River for much of the way, then through the mountains. 145 kms of winding, wilderness mountain road. Take a look of Google Streetview.

Thanks guys, I'll be looking at the maps in a moment. Sounds like I need to do both.

Look up the Gaspesian Loop on the graveltravel.ca. site. Michelle and I put 2000+ km on it a couple of months ago. Will post a vid when I get my ass off the couch.
