Cycle the famous rail trail through charming villages of Quebec’s Laurentians
Just north of Montreal lies the longest park of its kind in Canada. “Le P’tit Train du Nord” (Little Train of the North) linear park features a 200-km cycle path built over an old railway line from Saint-Jérôme to Mont-Laurier. It is a gentle, mostly crushed gravel trail that takes you along an old settler’s route through lush “Laurentides” countryside, charming villages and abandoned, restored train stations. Unlike many rail trails which are laid out in straight lines, this trail curves around rivers, lakes, and the base of mountains. Shuttles drop off your luggage at B&B’s every day, while refreshments and meals are available in villages along the way.
