Is it open? Condition? Mileage?

Thank you.

Thank you Mcstar and Mid Range, I cannot find Black Rollway on my maps I've heard it mentioned in trail reports not sure what or where it is?

Pavillon du Black Rollway is located on the local trail (orange trail) between 308 and 322 in the eagle forest west of Maniwaki. it`s a relay. gas and food available

Is this typically a good riding area? I'm looking at maybe a loop from Maniwaki south to Waltham across 43 then back north.

trails west of Maniwaki (308 north of lac cayamant,local trail around Black Rollway area and 322) are the best trails in our area. I can`t speak for Waltham area as I never ride in that area. Last time I rode 308 towards Fort-Coulonge was in 2005 on our way to Rapides des Joachims. I know for a fact that 308 has been relocated a few times over the past years. Would be appreciated to have some feedback if You venture in that area.

I'll be sure to let you know what I find if I venture that way. I'll be riding for 3 day's late next week with a couple of first timers to QC. I would have liked a northern loop with a couple of over nights but they wanted to stay in one place and do loops for there first time....

Mid Range, We did the loop we discussed across 308 this past Sat. From Maniwaki 13 s to 322 to orange trail to 308-43-311-13-308-orange -322 all the way to up to Grand Remous 63 and dropped back down into Maniwaki 335mi.

Overall trails were good 322 had stutter bumps but no prob,308 was narrow for the first 10 mi or so trail is shared half groomed half plowed then it opened up not marked very well but at intersections my GPS was handy never passed a sled until 80mi out at Jims lake. FYI 308 is not groomed for approx. 1mi near there they cannot get a groomer in there.
