HIGHWAY 132 is the perimeter highway that circumnavigates most of the Gaspe Peninsula.
We drove it for hundreds of kilometers from where it branches away from Highway 20, the route that we picked up driving through Montreal. It takes you along the south shore of the St.Lawrence River to the tip of Gaspe and then along the south shore of the Peninsula.
Some areas of the road bring you through some pretty desolate country,a strip of pavement through thick forests and cut into rock.
None of the small villages along the coast can escape the roadway; the thoroughfare brings visitors, supplies, and much needed dollars to the local economies of the communities along its route and so in all likelihood most communities would want the road anyhow.
There were parts of the roadway that were a little rough but for the most part it?s a paved two lane road that brings you through some spectacular coastal scenery. The route brings you upon vista after vista, up and down some steep hills, and around some long sweeping corners.
No passing lanes exist but there are many places with good views of oncoming traffic so be patient if you?re driving this route and DON'T be in a hurry.
Another reason that you might just want to be patient, especially driving at night, because animals including moose and other large mammals venture onto the road. A collision with any of these larger animals is NOT what you want or need to happen.
Although most of the weather wasn?t that we experienced driving Highway 132 was decent I?m SURE that in a snowstorm or rain squall you need to exercise more caution than usual.
If you?re touring the Gaspe by vehicle its pretty much assured that you?ll be driving the Main Highway, number 132, Enjoy the scenery!!
