Off-trail riding in Laurentians

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have a cottage in Labelle / Laurentians

 

Are any open spaces and places where I can ride off road and without any problems?

 

Thank you for your advice.

Last year when I was at 100 Lacs another group was there that had off-trail ridden to 100 Lacs from St. Michel des Saints.  Seemed like Paul knew them you might look them up through Paul.

I also meant a couple of guys at Kanawata last season that rode there off trail, said they do approx 50/50 trail off trail. Kanawata may be able to give a bit of info?

I haven't really done any off trail riding since before there were real trails, yeah really dating my self! Anyway i am thinking if you want to goof around trying it there are a lot of trails in the area that use portions of the hydro line corridors. I always see lots of off trail tracks in those areas. Also I am guessing maps that would show crown land might be useful, no sense tick off private land owners.

Kanawata to Parent offtrail trail just up the road from Kanawata express exit

Parent to Clova via power lines then ch. Lepine south on trail to about 3 Klms north of Pourvoirie Lac Outaouais, head east off trail to Balbuzard then head south west and hit a road that runs parallel to ch. Lepine then cross over to Lepine about 10 k before the 117.

North of Auberge Taurau take the lake circuit to Lac du Repos then the next lake circuit to 100Lacs then power lines to Clova.

if you're handy witha gps, can start from L'Accension Zec Maison de Pierre entrance and ride all you want off trail in the Zec.

I can go on.... 

Lots to discover and remember never ride alone offtrail. A shovel, buck saw and matches is an onboard asset.
