Kilometer 0: Welcome to the Trans-Labrador Highway
Upon leaving Baie Comeau, and turning onto Route 389, you are greeted by signs welcoming you on the Trans-Quebec-Labrador Highway.
Only 567km to the border
Just a few meters down the road, you'll find this sign announcing that it's only 567km to the Labrador border. Keep in mind that there aren't many gas stations along the way, so it's best to fill up whenever you can, including in Baie Comeau.
Logging trucks and winding roads
Just a short way down the road, you'll see this sign which reminds you that you're sharing a very twisty road with huge logging trucks. You might count a few dozen trucks on the 211km drive up to Manic-5, and they'll be hustling unless they're going uphill. It's wise to stay well on your side of the yellow line...
Manic-2 Hydro Dam
It's only a short drive from Baie-Comeau to the Manic-2 hydro dam. Free guided tours are available. If you take the morning tour, you'll have time to drive up to Manic-5 and still take in their afternoon tour.
Manic-5 Hydro Dam
The road between Manic-2 and Manic-5 is asphalt, but it's rarely straight or flat. It's great fun to drive, except when you're stuck behind a logging truck. Figure on at least two hours of driving. Supply anti-nauseates to your passengers if you plan on sticking to the 90km/h limit in the twisty bits...
