Mountain biking on the park’s trails. © Parks Canada
You are looking for intense feelings or a simple ride in the forest? Go to the Rivière à la Pêche area to escape on the Park's mountain bike trails. A 55 km network with rest stops awaits you in the heart of the forest. Anxious to try it? Rent a bike at the Service Centre.
Note that the trails on which this activity is permitted are trails 3, 5, 6a, 7, 8, 9, 11, the Parkway, and trail 6 between Bouchard lake and lac du Pimbina.
- Trail number 11 is ideal for young families. This trail offers you a flat 4 km course.
- The boldest will surely want to venture onto trails 5 and 6A which are at the difficult level. However, use extra caution: these hilly trails can represent a good challenge, since there are roots, rocks and mud on them at times.
