Description

Cycling route: from one shore of Lake Témiscouata to the other.

Combine a cycle ride in Lake Témiscouata National Park with a ride on the Petit Témis cycle path by taking the small shuttle ferry in Cabano, Témiscouata-sur-le-Lac and then the larger car ferry Le Corégone across Lake Témiscouata between Saint-Juste-du-Lac and Notre-Dame-du-Lac. A loop of 24 km.

Take the small shuttle ferry at the quay in Cabano: a pontoon boat for pedestrians and cycles will take you across to the National Park visitor's center (Anse-à-William ) on the other side of Lake Témiscouata, a boat ride of about 15 minutes. From there you can pedal 5.5 km along the Grey-Owl cycle path (fine gravel), across the suspension bridge over the River Touladi and on to the Chemin du Lac. This slightly undulating country road, partly unpaved, partly asphalt, leads to the ferry Le Corégone (6km). The lake crossing to the Notre-Dame-du-Lac marina takes 15 minutes and from there the Petit Témis cycle path brings you back to your starting point.

This circuit can be done in either direction.

If you prefer to cycle only on asphalt, there are 26 km of paved road in the National Park; you can also take the Highway 85 service road, which is part of a cycling route, instead of the Petit Témis. Consult the map: Destination vélo VA.pdf [3,52 Mo]
