Riding out of Quebec City

Recommended Posts

Can anyone tell me if conditions allow me to ride from Four Points in Quebec City north to Saguenay. If not, any suggestions for a starting point for a saddle bag trip. Driving from down south.

Thanks

I rode #3 to Mont Sainte-Anne and took the bypass to 369 Saturday and the conditions were okay. I took the 369 back to Quebec City and from the Stoneham intersection down to #3 the trail was in very bad condition . We have had both heavy rain and some snow since so I don't have a more recent update unfortunately.

There's a sled shop/outfitter right in the parking lot of the 4 Points who can probably give you real-time conditions:

Kamoutik Aventure

7900 Rue du Marigot, Ville de Québec, QC G1G 6T8

Here's what you wanna see looking out your window over there in the morning!...

Thanks everyone for the advice...I'm leaning towards Saint Raymond...I heard, hopefully right, that the trails are in decent shape. From there I'll ask around to find a good destination. Almost 60 f at home today!

Got 4-5 inches yesterday and 10-15 inches in the forecast for tonight and tomorrow. Taking a day off work tomorrow to go riding. Will get back with an update tomorrow night.

JG don't forget there is a street gas station in Lac Edwardo .94 a litre. A bit up road toward rail road station on left is Le presbytère de Lac-Édouard, stop in and ask Nathalie or Louis for some orange juice, fresh squeezed, tell them Phil sent you. It is a yellow building right in front of the church its a new Gite.

Thanks for the tip Phil

0.94 a litre sounds a lot better than Gouin's at 1.85 a litre.

South end of the lake Station is on Main road just South of where RR tracks cross maybe 1/3 mile.

So if JG is heading north and crosses the tracks, he has to look left so it must be west? :shock:

Sorry. I just couldn't resist!

Jack & Sandi

Maybe...but if he looks right it will be East.

I was in Roberval Saturday night and a crew came in from Lac Edward and said the trail (355) was terrible trees down and ungroomed for weeks.
