Our first visit to the P’Tit Train du Nord.
This is a linear trail extending from St Jerome, in the south, to Mont Laurier, in the north.
It’s 200km long.
An old rail line, in the summer you can bicycle the whole thing, in the winter some sections are reserved for x-country skiing and the rest of it is for snowmobiles (stretch dream for me!)
The x-country ski section is groomed.
In non-pandemic years I think you have to pay to access the ski trails. That’s what my guide book says. But when we arrived it said it was free. Yay!
In previous years we have ventured further north into Lanaudiere region for our x-country skiing. But today we were looking for something within an hour of our home, which landed us at an access point near Sainte Adele.
It was a wonderful introduction to a trail we will definitely return to in the future.
The section we did is circled in green on the map.
