Very fun technical trail, but not too difficult that you can't do it (intermediate). For the really big rocks theres always a way around them. The climb isn't that bad, just in a couple of sections where theres a lot of big rocks, and to get to the top of mountain, its pretty rough. The backside is less rocky, but much steeper.
The second section (which is seperated by a gravel road) takes you to a lake where there are numerous trails to choose from, although i stuck to the MOC marked trail.

Also, they don't sell the map anymore, since most of the land is privately owned and people were apparently ruining the place.
I went on a sunday, and it was packed with hikers and dogs. Weekday is probably the time to go.

This is a nice technical ride that has a bit of everything. The mountain can be climbed on a bike when you take it from the north side. The north and south part are cool for DH and are very different from one to the other. Congratulation to the dum** A** who started a forest fire on top of the mountain !!!!!

*Make sure u have a good helmet, water and a good cardio !!

Customer Service

Park at 'La Gare' or B52 for old timers !, take le ptit train du nord, ride in the christmas tree plantation until the end of the mountain.
Go left, cross the little river, then turn right on the lumberjack road (ride about 1k), then right again on the lumberjack work place, this way you take the mountain by the north. As you go up you will see a trail on your right, take it and u should make it to the MOC.

?I ride those trails 1-2/week , they are extremely fun and sometime dangerous. VERY rocky , very technical, some good descent.
You have all the different patern in one place.There is a lot of pro who ride those trail for training.
-Caution there is some trail that past very near 100-200 ft drop-
For experience rider or expert only. Those trails are rought XC with little DH, some creek , little lake and swamp a lot of rocks and dead trees. The rocks are very sharp so get a good helmet. Very easy to get lost.
In the past 2 years they cut a LOT of trees so some trails disapeard or moved and there is a lot of new rought single track, so the map is usefull but not very accurate.If you enter a old or bad trail it will be boring very fast because you will walk more then ride...

Just one word: horrible. Way too many HUGE rocks, more roots than available dirt to ride on, absolutely impossible to pedal towards the top. You will walk as much as you will ride. Where lumbering has occured, all trail indicators have been removed. Yes this is my first year riding, however i have been to Kingdom Trails and Coaticook, so I have enough judgement to know that I had absolutely no fun and will not return. PS. If you make a mistake off the JE trail/Chemin de la Riviere, and end up on Chemin des Carrieres trying to get to the Petit Train du Nord bike path, I hope you don't get run down to the ground by the same Rottweiller that got me.

Go somewhere else, really.

Boucle faire: Moc en passant prs du lac et au point de vue ensuite prendre la 8 droite, puis la 6X droite pour revenir enfin droite sur la MOC et puis finalement la JE gauche qui fini la boucle vers le P'tit Train du Nord (boucle d'environ 4 h de bike).
Prvoyer beaucoup d'eau surtout l't 30 C. Pour rider qui aime les monte techniques et des bonnes descentes.

Yes this is a very nice network of trails, probably some of the best in the Laurentians. Unfortunately civilization is creeping in on them and a lot of the trails have disappeared into housing developments since I first discovered them for myself about 15 years ago. Again today I found that some of these property owners really cannot co-exist with us mountain bikers or with nature. As I climbed the 8 mentioned in Jean's review, I was in eager anticipation of the nice downhill that was coming up down the 6x to left near the end of the climb. To my surprise some jackass decided to block access to this trail. He cut down all the trees on one side of the trail making sure they fell across the trail effectively closing it down to mountain bikers. I did this route last week and it was fine. I walked down to see how far this went on, went about a couple of hundred meters, but the whole trail was completely covered with felled trees. Too bad , nice trail the 6x. If you want to try the rest of these trails they are still well worth it. You will need a map which you can get for 2$ at the Gare de Prevost on the P'tit Train du Nord.

This is the most elite trail i saw, it has everything, technical climb, nice picth to jump, good game DH and lots of place where u can get urself badly hurt belive me on that :). Anyway if u think u can climb all of it in one shot be in shape it took me awhile to know every little detail of the trail. Be very careful some trail arent for midget, ull be riding down like a rock fallin from a cliff.

Customer Service

15 nord, then 117 toward prevost, u will see a place call le faubourg de la station, behind it there a parking lots that u can park, you will see le petit train du nord just go on it direction mont-laurier about a few meter and u will see a little trail climbing up the mouuintain
