Mountain Biking Park De La Gorge de Coaticook

****   Add a review

The park is rapidly gaining a reputation for great mountain biking trails and for good reason. This is an excellent area to ride, well maintained and challenging. In addition the park has good camping along with hiking trails and the longest suspension bride (foot bridge) in the world. This is a great weekend getaway.

    We had trailforks and headed towards the start, without a plan, as these very short trail sections all had names, and it was took much to string together and try to remember the order that we wanted to go. We were pleasantly surprised to find the trails numbered, so that we didn't have to know the names, but could just ride in numerical order to get the biggest loop of non-repeated riding. This is EXACTLY what a visitor wants when they come to ride! Also, whenever there was a black section that was next in numerical order, there was always a route to bypass it and continue to the next section without doing it. The trails themselves seemed like a lot of climbing for not a whole lot of rewarding downhills. I was thinking it was alright, but nothing special... until the very end. This is where all your climbing pays off and you get to ride very fun downhills that go on and on. I only wish I knew what I was working for, and maybe I would have found it more worth it during the ride. I'd come here again if in the area, and thought they were well maintained.

    Nice trails, you must like to climb. Some sections have been modified after some problems with heavy rain. You have to try it when the trails are dry. Go to East Hereford the next Day... In the winter, fatbike is possible.

    Single track with climbs very technical and the downhill is fun. The majority of the trails are rather intermediate to expert with a nice little beginner loop made in late 2010. The best playground to test your performances.

    That's a great place where you can test your technical skill level. A lot of roots, rocks, technical climbs, and that's a real mountain bike trail, not a cross country skiing trail. Located on a hill, not a big mountain, so you don't climb indefinitely and you get paid back rapidly! It is located right in a camping so you can ride twice a day if you want.
