Train, Cycling and Hiking on Sept. 19th

Join us for a car-free adventure in the Laurentians! We’ll take the commuter train to St. Jérôme, then bike along the P’tit Train du Nord all the way to Prévost, and then hike on trails within the parc des Falaises!

When: Saturday September 19th from 8:15 am until around 6:45 pm.

Where: Meet at De la Concorde station. Return to the same place.

For whom: You’ll need to be able to carry your bike up into the train yourself, bike a total of 30 km on a gravel path, and hike for around 8 km on rustic, sometimes steep trails. It will be a fun and active day! Write us if you have any questions! [email protected]
