Tremblant Provincial Park - Trail, Tremblant, Quebec

Tremblant Provincial Park - Trail, Tremblant, Quebec

DESCRIPTION

NOT THE SKI HILL. The provincial park has some tiny technical challenge but again like Couloir Arobique, better suited for training. This said, it does not mean you can't have fun. Lots of little jumps and bumps around main trail. Go to the Pimbina section, this is the nicest. For extreme riding, Bromont is better suited.

2003 Update for those who have not been, and are debating. They stopped all downhill, and most of the trails are gravel/paved. There are a few singletrack trails that are nice, but are very poorly marked. The information center has a map, which is good for toilet paper if you are lost in the woods. Your best bet is to find a local rider, and ask where the trails start. I rank it poorly because it is very easy to get lost. Other notable items, if you are heading there, park at the information center, not Tremblant's parking lot. There are no fees to pay there, and none are required to ride the trails. Also be ready to climb hills, there are a ton there!

Le Diable and La Gorge are good. The Owl is also a nice trail which follows the river....

These are indeed a cross country trails. the kind you pack a lunch for, and maybe perhaps bring a blanket and a date. There is nothing technical to be found here, some climbs and descents, but mostly flat treks through the forest on hard pack to loose gravel along scenic views of lakes, rivers and mountains. Great place to ride as a couple to enjoy the views and have a picnic. There is one lookout near river and bridge, with tables nearby, very worthwhile, painting-like. A must see. You'll know it if you see it. I hope you find it. Also other nice spots (where the signs indicate you must walk your bike to pass) leading to big rocks in the waterfalls, beautiful spot to relax. (also the only technical and best riding to be found, if you dare) Summary: Good place for cardio training and high speed runs. Excellent place for beginner and intermediate riders looking for a workout with a scenic background. Well suited for the weekend ride with a date or whole family, especially if camping nearby.

Cross bridge at the lac Monroe facilities (once in the parc of course)and drive past the lac chat and the lac grenouille (or whatever)camp sites, the road will bring you to a dead end with a sandy parking lot with the entrance to the trails. I've seen cars park safely for days there. Enjoy!

If you are a cross country rider, then this trail is for you. If you go in the fall when the trees are changing color it is beautiful. The park has tons of great rolling terrain and is fun to ride.

Nice trail, the whole cicuit is not long, about 15k. An intermediate trail with some good aerobic climbs, easy enough, but lots of fun for beginners on the the downhill. Its narrow with lots of loose gravel, great for a first serious spill.

Customer Service

From Montreal north on the 15 to St Donat, follow directions to the park. Acess to the trail is from the main entrance.

Sector "La diable", more specifically around lake Monroe, has a few mountain bike trails. They are mainly cross-country ski trails. Most are quite easy and without interest to the serious rider. But there is one that is quite tough. It's called "La mallard" if I'm not mistaken and is about 12-15 km (I don't remember exactly). It takes you to "l'tang l'ours" (Bear pond!) first, which is a few kilometers of fairly flat, yet beautifull trails. Great to warm up on. After the pond, the climbing starts. There is a wickedly long (several km's) technical climb all the way to "Lac l'ours" (Bear lake!). This climb is full of rocks, muddy sections and is quite steep. Very challenging! There are generally a few parts where you have to run up. Once at the top, you have a beautifull view of a pristine mountain lake. Then you start down the mountain. The final hill is about 2-3 km long and full of rocks, mud, drops. You can really start whipping down here and good brakes are a must. Lots of fun. I guarantee that you wont be clean when you finnish this trail! This trail is definetly not for beginners. The beauty of the park is definetly worth seing.

Customer Service

This is for sector "La diable" of the Park. Take highway 15 north to St-Faustin. Then follow the signs to the provincial parc sector "La diable". You'll be driving through the municipalities of "Lac Carr" and "Lac Suprieur" on your way.

The different trails are easy for any advanced riders. In fact, I do most of these trails on the biggest front gear. The climbs are not very difficult and there's not a lot of descent. Those are trails are intended to go fast. Be careful, because they are used by many persons (hikers, families, children, and slow bikers...) so you'll need to slow down often. To have a bigger challenge, you can try the hiking trails (it's supposed to be restricted area to bikers, but a lot of riders try them anyway... make your own mind about it). The best thing about Tremblant park is taht you can do several things (kayak, swimming, camping, etc.) and the landscapes are incredible.

Customer Service

Follow the signs on highway 15 north for "Parc du Mont Tremblant, Secteur La Diable". At the entrance of the park, ask a map of the mtb trails at the registration office. Then go at the "Centre de service du Lac Monroe" and leave your car there.

At the bottom of the ski area, in "Village Mont Tremblant" you'll find other trails to ride, some paved, some unpaved.
