Petit Train du Nord - Laurentian Bike Path
The P’tit train du Nord is a 200 kilometre bicycle Trail which runs throughout the Laurentians. It is an easy-to-ride trail that offers some spectacular scenery and that is lined with a good assortment of tourist facilities. It has to rate as one of the very best bicycle trails in this corner of North America.
The “P’tit train du Nord” literally means the “Little Train of the North”, and the trail is built on an old railway line which closed in the late 1980s. This means this trail is relatively flat. There are a few long gradual slopes to either climb or descend, but these should not be much of a challenge for most people, even those who may only cycle occasionally. The lack of hills on this trail is even more impressive considering that it winds its way through the Laurentian Mountains.
The Petit Train du Nord is located 15-20 min from our chalets in either Ste Agathe or St. Faustin Station stops.
