No. of Reviews: 15

Main winding road is extremly boring but if you have some patience, you can discover short fun sections in the woods. Most begin from the top. These XC trails are illegal to bikes so we are only listing them for hiking purposes after your ride on the main road ;)

Summary:
the shore is up the university of montreal ski hill(abandoned) and beside the côte-des-neiges cemetery.

a first section with maybe 8 to 10 berms with a couple of 4x4 style jumps,followed by an of camber dual track....stop at your left a 10 foot gap or strait ahead a couple of 4-5 footers.


if you play in this area you will have a good time for week days...i've seen a couple of x-country guy with bent rims at the end of the shore...


Recommended Route:
up mt-royale street up the mountain you will find something!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
stroll around the mountain and follow guys with full face helmets!!!

on your way down stop for beer and that's my usual tuesday afternoon

Summary:
people usually say its a trail to ryde if yur outta money or dont have a car to go to bromont, but i think that if i could live at the top of the moutnain i'd hit it everyday( its quite a hyke from where i live)it starts up more of like an XC single track, but turns out into some entry level DH and very steep tech DH at some parts. watch out for 5-0 cuz it'll ruin yur day and bank account( 138$) if yur careful u wont get caught

Recommended Route:
ummmmm.......?????? where the no bike signs point to?

Other recommended trails in the same area:
urban scene downtown, BIG O, Mcgill, molson centre, old portt, basically downtown!

NIGHT RIDE REVIEW:
I have not done this in day seriously enough to review yet, being an illegal trail one has to adapt. Get some night-lights, and go nuts. The cops do not come out at night, but beware those exploring their sexuality do, and you are guaranteed to zoom by some as benches and tables are scattered throughout. Nonetheless, this is some of the most diverse night trails in terms of ground covered and cityscape-views laid about.
There is the initial gravel climb which then leads to deep woods penetration with technical singletracks, full of slow climbs and steep drops, roots, concrete chunks, rocks. Trail spreads into the backdrop of the university and skirts through and around the graveyard and back. There are dangerous lethal cliffs and probably syringes everywhere, I truly recommend going with a local expert or risk death otherwise.

Summary:
There are some interesting DH trail but you have to know where to find them. As for the cops, I've been riding ther for 2 years and is yet to get caught (knock on wood)I go week nights
The trails are not maintain so they do get worst as the year goes on.
It's free and you get a great view of montreal

Recommended Route:
Look for the no bike sign on top of the mountain

Other recommended trails in the same area:
You can clinb the second peak (overlooking the UofM football field) and find a good trail but it's hardly worth it !
