Accessible to all skiers from beginners to professionals. Going through different villages and along the RIVIERE DU NORD ( river) there are some bistro style resraurant along the way. A scenic route.

We really enjoyed this as a cycling route. We were fortunate to be on a mostly paved route. The views were spectacular. It seems the first week of October is the peak for the fall colors. Definitely recommend this route!

We started in St-Jérôme (km 0) to Mont-Laurier (km 200). From one B&B to the next with 56 to 65 km per day. Restaurants of all kinds all along the way. Best bike path I have ever seen.

Our group of regular cyclists decided to take the 4-day "challenge" route of the P'tIt Train du Nord trail from L'Ascension to St-Jerome. We arrived in St-Jerome, parked and were bussed - bikes and all - to our start point. From there we would ride every day to an Auberge or B&B. The path is paved in parts, and compacted... More

We had a wonderful ride with two other couples, stopping 3 nights along the way. The trail does have some surface defects, but is rideable on a road bike. Excellent toilet facilities frequently along the trail. A place to stop for food every 15-20 km. Great views and scenery. A definite highlight of all the bike trips I have been... More

The path is a bit hilly at some points, but it will be unforgettable The stream, the mountains, the flowers, theirs just so much to admire. This is one place when the destination takes a backseat to the unfolding view, while you pedal.

We did the trip in 4 days, total 225 km with side trips. 90% of people speak English varying from getting- by to fluent. High school French mostly helpful just to pronounce the town names and order food. Most places have English on the menus. However, many road and public service signs are only in French. Signage on PTDN is... More

Le Petit Train du Nord, of course, is not a railroad – it is a bike path. Starting in St-Jerome, it runs for 200 kms north, through the woods and small towns that dot the Laurentian mountains north of Montreal. The path was originally a rail roadbed (hence the name). It has been regraded and refurbished into a wide path... More

We did this bike ride through Relais Velo Laurentides / Nos Belles Augerges d'Autrefois. They arrange bike rentals, transportation to Mont Laurier and wonderful, warm, welcoming inns for you to spend your nights. You cycle from inn to charming inn and they transport your luggage as well as providing (a very substantial) breakfast and dinner. Most of the 200km trail... More

This is a wonderful place to get outside and enjoy life. This old railway line has been turned into a wonderful corridor for getting outside and enjoying the fresh air.
