La Scie has very little flat land except at the heads
of bays or on old marine beaches. The steep cliffs of La
Scie rise some 400 feet from the sea. The water surrounding
the area is very deep and allows for large ships to enter
its Harbour. Most of the higher land inside the town limits
is barren except for the ponds, lakes, and river valleys,
which are heavily forested. The land in the area is not
suited for vegetation and crops.
