Description

Rivière-du-Loup to Témiscouata-sur-le-Lac (Cabano) (north section)

Built on the track of the old railway, the 134 km of gravel path is reserved for cyclists and pedestrians. Between Rivière-du-Loup and Cabano, the North Section covers more than 70 km, running alongside rivers and through beautiful forest, and includes several rest stops.

It is accessible from various departure points, all with free parking. The gradual gradient of the path makes this track pleasurable for all. In the summer season, the north section is patrolled.

Café de la Station, à Saint-Modeste (Station café, Saint-Modeste)

Whether you need to relax, have a bite to eat or quench your thirst, the Station Café is the best place to take a break. Located 15 km from Rivière-du-Loup (km 119.3), this small restaurant serves light meals, various beverages and iced treats, with two terraces, a lunch box service for cyclists and tourist information. Open from June 24 to Labour day.

Témiscouata-sur-le-Lac (Cabano) to Edmundston (south section)

Most of the southern portion follows the contours of Lake Témiscouata and River Madawaska, crossing the Québec municipalities of Témiscouata-sur-le-Lac (Cabano and Notre-Dame-du-Lac), and Dégelis (there is a cycle stop at the old railway station) and St-Jacques and Edmundston in New Brunswick. The section between Cabano and Dégelis (28 km one way) is particularly popular as it continuously runs along the shores of Lake Témiscouata and has striking views of this huge lake. It also takes you across some well known wooden bridges (trestles).
