Located less than an hour from Quebec, the Vallée Bras-du-Nord is one of the largest stretches of hiking trails in Quebec and offers spectacular views over its entire territory.

With 80 km of trails for hiking and snowshoeing, 100 km of mountain biking paths including 65 km of singletracks and a 17.5 km river run, Vallée Bras-du-Nord is the ideal outdoor destination! We also offer activities such as canyoning, Via Ferrata, Fat Bike and back country skiing. 

MTB: 2 sectors, 2 experiences

Shannahan area is the wild side of the Valley. Just 20 minutes from Saint-Raymond, this network of trails cleverly nested among hills of glacial debris brings you deep inside the boreal forest, along vertiginous cliffs, rivers and waterfalls. Two days of riding are possible for beginners as well as experts, with accomodation in camping, yurts or cottages.

Saint-Raymond sector is the countryside of the Valley. Near the village, in a rural setting, 30 km of well-cut singletracks await you. A succession of short climbs and descents full of flow, grouped on two small mountains, that you ride with a big smile on your face, before enjoying a well-earned pint at the microbrewery at the trailhead.
