Just north of Montreal lies the longest park of its kind in Canada. “Le P’tit Train du Nord” (Little Train of the North) linear park features a 200km cycle path built over an old railway line from Saint-Jérôme to Mont-Laurier. It is a gentle, mostly crushed gravel trail that takes you along an old settler's route through lush "Laurentides" countryside, charming villages and abandoned, restored train stations.

Unlike many rail trails which are laid out in straight lines, this trail curves around rivers, lakes, and the base of mountains. More importantly, the trail benefits from the entire tourist infrastructure that developed when the train used to bring thousands of people into the Laurentians for summer vacations and winter skiing from the 1930s to the 1960s. Shuttles drop off your luggage at B&B’s every day, while refreshments and meals are available in villages along the way.
