Bike Getaways Along the P’tit Train du Nord Linear Park
Are you looking for an escape? Come travel along the P’tit Train du Nord Linear Park, a bike path that traverses the Laurentians region over 234 kilometres from south to north between Bois-des-Filion and Mont-Laurier.
Tourisme Laurentides offers a free booking service for organizing your trip along the P’tit Train du Nord. You can ride the path at your own pace without worrying about lugging your bags around!
How does it work?
-We organize all customized stays based on visitors’ needs.
-The route is planned according to the number of kilometres you want to travel per day.
-We take care of booking accommodations and transporting your luggage (this shuttle bus service for cyclists has trailers specially designed and adapted for transporting bicycles).
Because the P’tit Train du Nord is a linear bike path, loops are impossible unless you retrace your route. Usually, trips begin in the morning at kilometre 0 in Saint-Jérôme, which serves as the meeting place where the carrier awaits you. The shuttle will transport you to your predetermined starting point. The carrier then goes to the Mont-Laurier station, the end of the path, which is kilometre 200. Most cyclists travel to Mont-Laurier and ride the path to Saint-Jérôme. It should be noted that the path has a slight downward slope when ridden southward, so it is somewhat easier than going from south to north. On average, cyclists pedal about 30 to 50 kilometres per day, and they choose their lodging accordingly.
All options are possible. If you have just two days and one night, based on the number of kilometres you want to travel, you could go to Mont-Tremblant, ride to Sainte-Adèle, sleep there and then complete your trip in Saint-Jérôme the next day. The carrier offers stops at all stations on the linear park.
