If some of you guys are planning a trip to Québec, you might considered leaving from Maniwaki.We are located 1h1/2 drive from Ottawa.

as for day 1 destination, you can go to Val d'Or, Clova, Parent or Saint-michel- des-Saints.These are only suggestions.

our website has been updated lately and you can order your trail pass online.

Well....did my first ride of the season on new year's eve.The railroad bed between Low and Maniwaki is now groomed.We have about 10 inches on the ground.Hopefully they will open TQ 13/63 north of Maniwaki this week and the lakes gets safe.It is just a matter of time.If mother nature can send us a decent snowfall we will be in business.Not an easy start this year.

Hi Linda

I am very familiar with this area, i spend most of my riding just north of Mt.Laurier, i just had a look at some local club websites for that area and you can ride out of Mt.Laurier, however, if you arrive there and the conditions don't suit your fancy, i would suggest to drive a little to the north to a town called Ferme Neuve, only 20 minutes more. First place i would suggest you to ride to is Devils mountain relais aka Relais Mountagne Diable and pick up some local maps, very nice club house btw. The woodrunner map (Courrier du Bois) have trails that inter link between outfitters and are absolutely beautiful to ride on, all forest roads. I have added two links below of local clubs, pay particular attention to the the conditions in the Chute St.Phillippe club, it lists some of the outfitters you'll find on the woodrunner map in the red highlighted zone and that's where you wanna be.

Thanks guys......and yes Florida Snowman I prefer working with pressure treated posts than galvanized steel posts. Much faster using screws than bolts and nuts when comes the time to install these signs.
