Mountain Biking Velo Fortune

****   Add a review
#23 of 88 mountain bike trails in Quebec
#4,989 in the world

The trail system is on the Camp Fortune Ski slopes but use only single tracks between ski hills. Many loops interconnected, some very technical with big rocks but a little bit for everyone.
Lots for freeride bikers and downhillers. Chairs are running for downhill on weekends. Even with a bike wash at the main ski chalet. Open 7 days a week from may to october. And if you do not have enough there is a new aerial park.

    It's a really nice place for all levels of difficulty. There is lift access for only one part of the mountain which makes it more enduro style. It features two pump tracks and loads of fun.

    Great technical place. I came to do Enduro runs and
    had a good time. It takes about 30-40 minutes to get to the top of the hill. Lifts are not working this summer so you have to climb. Runs like Quebec cup and Salamander will bring you all the way to the bottom of the hill so you have to climb up Chemin Du Lac Meech and then make a left on Chemin Dunlop in order to get back to the upper parking and then you have to climb either a double track on the left or a single track on the right depending to what trails you wish to do. The double track will bring you to the more linger trails that go all the way to the bottom where the single track on the right will bring you back to the upper parking. Trails are technicall with alot ot rock and once you hit black trails you come across steep rocky drops that you have to check out and find your line for the first time or you might go over the handle bars. You have to be an intermediate rider at least that enjoys riding rock in order to have a good time there.

    I'm a XC MT biker and NOT a downhill biker...there are some really crazy drops at Fortune for the downhill biker. For XC, there is quite a long way up to to get to the start of the main trail (Sunset) but there are many good and short trails at the bottom.
    For the Sunset climb, you are rewarded at the top with a nice view (you can see Tremblant afar on a really nice day).

    This is where I started to ride a few years back...very technical mountain but fun flowing mountain if your skills are good...Sunset being the longest one (takes me approx. 45-60 min just that trail!)

    Some easy trails but most are intermediate (blue) to advance skill level (1 and 2 diamond)! You can rarely sit on your bike unless you are climbing.
    So far I have ridden Keslo, Albion Hills, Durham Forests as well as trails near Bromont and some trails in Tremblant and Rigaud. So far, I couldn't find a mountain offering many KM of trails as difficult as Fortune but I am sure there are some outthere.

    The map is not the best but these trails are being taken care of by a group of volunteer. They did an awsome job over the past years...they have really cleaned it up.
