  1. I never realized that there was once a trail there, I didn't start sledding up there until the mid 2000's. That certainly would be a long haul in a groomer! It's hard to get operators here for a few hours, I can't imagine getting people pinned down for 24. Are there roads to take you from the end of the trail at Lac de Huit Milles over to the local trail that goes from Carleton to La Cache? I've been through that trail a couple times and it's nice country, I'd like to do a little off trail riding in that area someday. Also, If you ever do quit grooming, you'll be busy at your camp with those prices...
  2. Thanks for the reply! Hopefully you'll hear a little more in the next little bit, this could be a great shortcut to get to your area from Campbellton. Some nice to see new trail getting added and not taken away! Now we just need a new trail from Amqui to LaCache.... Thanks!
  3. Hi Jean Guy, Awesome to see some current grooming pics! I see on the Moose Valley Facebook page that there is a new trail from New Brunswick to QC. Their quote after google translate is "A new path to the ascension-de-Patapédia will be in operation in the next week. A front door in gaspésie & Campbellton." Do you know anything about this? It would be great to have access to QC closer to Campbellton. Thanks!
  4. Looks awesome Jean Guy. Now you have me thinking of another trip!
  5. Cool Pictures! We were running short on time too, or we would have liked to try to find our way up. Likely be next year now. I think I have a bit of an idea of where that trail is, thanks for the map!
  6. Groomer, do you know anything about the odd shaped building on top of the hill in Matapedia? I saw it this year but don't remember seeing it last year. Thanks!
  7. Great Pics Groomer! I'm surprised last week's wind didn't blow all the ice out into the Gulf...

    Great write up and pictures! Thank You!
  9. Mundles is typically the tow truck most seem to use their number is (506) 759-8881. Didn't see any tracks across the ice when I was up on the weekend, so I typically don't risk it if the locals aren't going. http://www.mundlesservices.ca/trucks.html
  10. Hey Jean-Guy, We were fortunate enough to be some of the first tracks on your fresh groomed trail Friday morning and they were fantastic! Had a couple great days of riding. Thanks for all the time you put in, it's greatly appreciated! Preston
  11. Don't know which way you are going but the trail from Moose Valley to Amqui is an option.
  12. You could try Motel le Portage. It is real close to the quality Inn. Never stayed there, but have eaten there a few times and the food was really good. The restaurant was neat and clean. http://www.leportagematane.com/ There is also the Hotel-Motel La Vigie, it is across the road from the Portage, don't know anything about it. https://www.lavigie.com/ Best of luck
  13. Just my 2 cents.... Day 3 is going to be a steady day. 300km on the north shore is a long enough day. Lots of stick handling. Just a heads up that the section of 5 between the town of Gaspe and the trail into Perce has not always been very well maintained in the past. We typically avoid it by taking the orange trail just below Gaspe that goes over to the 597. As a bonus, it is one of the nicer trails out on the tip. Planning for a weather day is definitely a good idea, but if you don't have to use it, I personally would run from Murdochville to la Cache to Point a la Croix. Then the next day run from PALC to the Valga. Nice running up the Matapedia Valley. If you really wanted to treat yourself on the last day, you would go to Amqui via the 587 when leaving PALC. Food for thought
