My husband and I, we love biking and our favorite place to bike is this road 'Le petit train du Nord'. The only thing you should consider is that the road bikes are not that comfortable for this kind of road because of the small sand and rock. We take our hybrid bikes. There are breath-taking views in the way... More

It's been a few years since I've biked this trail, it's quite memorable though. Old stations dot the well maintained path which is a very easy grade. Stunning scenery.

The P’tit train du Nord is a 200 kilometer bicycle Trail which runs through the Laurentians north of Montréal. It is an easy-to-ride trail that offers some spectacular scenery and that is lined with a good assortment of tourist facilities. It has to rate as one of the very best bicycle trails in North America and people for all over... More

Le Petit Train du Nord is a well maintained, safe and beautiful trail. A biker can ride for miles without stopping. When I rode in September, the leaves were beginning to change. The entire trail is very beautiful and tranquil. It is like being in a storybook. Seeing the charming villages along the way added to the ride. I rode... More

Riding the Le Petit Train du Nord was something I had always wanted to do but once I moved to BC I didn't think it would happen. I had the opportunity recently and it did not disappoint. The trail is an easy ride for even those with minimal fitness. We did it in 3 days but 4 is probably better... More

My sister and I did parts of the trail in July, 2016. What a treat! The blacktop parts of the trail are excellent! I did see that the northern section needs work...but do not let that deter you. The overall experience is so well worth it. We thoroughly enjoyed having coffee in the cafes in the converted train stations. I... More

My husband and I just finished the 200 k Petit Train du Nord, from Mt. Laurier south to St. Jerome. The weather was superb, and the scenery along parts of the trail, particularly in the remote section south of Mt. Laurier, was beautiful. We booked a 6 day tour with JeanClaude and Linda; very good b and b's, lovely people,... More

We did the PT du Nord in Sept 2016. The weather was fabulous, the trail is in good condition, the B&B's along the route were outstanding and we had a great time.

We rode two sections of the trail, Saint-Jerome to Provost, and Sainte-Adele to Val-David. Both were mostly compacted gravel in good condition. The route travels through some beautiful natural scenery, punctuated by the occasional historic railway station. For the best experience, be sure to research the grades in the direction you intend to take; while the slope is never more... More

Rode it in three days on mountain bikes with a friend. The trail was not as easy as I thought it was going to be but is easily doable for a good cyclist. Most people will want to spread it out over four days. There are some low grade climbs. The scenery was stunning. I can't wait to do it... More
