“Le P’tit Train du Nord” Linear Park – cycling and cross country skiing

“Le P’tit Train du Nord” Linear Park

Welcome to the longest linear park in Canada located in     the heart of the Laurentians via the old railway line built in the early     20th century.  The linear park     “Le P’tit Train du Nord” is 230 kilometers of incredible beauty,     along many rivers and lakes.  From     Saint-Jérôme to Mont-Laurier, discover the Laurentians in its natural state     as you pass through beautiful villages surrounded by forests and     mountains.  Enjoy the four seasons,     each with their wealth  and explore     by bike, inline skates, cross country skis or snowmobile.  Since 1996, people have come to enjoy     this park which is accessible to all due to its low elevation and multiple     service points. The train stations in the period architecture are sometimes     transformed into coffee shops, warm huts or for rental and repair of     equipment. The trail is dotted with picnic areas in scenic places for     everyone to enjoy the adventure at their own pace.

“Le P’tit Train du Nord” was the dream of the     legendary pastor of St. Jerome, Antoine Labelle. Built between Saint-Jérôme     to Mont-Laurier in the years 1891 to 1909, the railroad was going to be key     to the development of the region. “Le P’tit Train du Nord” has     fostered the growth of the tourism industry in the Laurentians. Upon     entering the station early locomotives, holiday resorts come to life.     “Le P’tit Train du Nord” particularly enjoyed unprecedented     success during the 1920s to 1940, when the Canadian Pacific Railway, owner     of the land, set up the snow trains. Happy convoys leaving Montreal every     weekend, carrying large nature lovers and skiers who were indulging in     skiing, a new popular sport in the region. “Le P’tit Train du Nord     “made his last trip for travelers November 15, 1981 and for freight in     1989. Seven years later, in 1996, the linear park “Le P’tit Train du     Nord” was inaugurated. Since then, the station has been renovated and     converted into points of service and the linear park generates a complete     tourist activity to accommodate cyclists, skaters, skiers and snowmobiling.
