Parc Beausjour

Average Rating:    (3.5 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 2

In the park itself, there is a cycling path made of asphalt which is pretty boring. But along the river, there are lots of little wooded trails that are a lot of fun. The trails aren't indicated, so you just have to explore them yourself and find what suites you. It varies from flat gravel paths, to too steep to climb hills. But no matter what skills you have, there's always terrain up to your level! You can't get lost. You're in downtown Rimouski!

Reviewed by: Simon , from Rimouski, Quebec

Summary:
Since I moved to Rimouski, this has been my training grounds for my mountain bike season. It's not the greatest of trails, but considering I have a 3.5 km mountain bike trail that leads from my door directly to it, it's the most practical place to train! The circuit I take starts on the East side of the river and takes a series of trails up the river about 5 km. There are a few steep technical climbs that get you breathing hard. Then I cross over the river on the highway. I know it's illegal, but if I take the bridge that is about 1 km before the highway, I miss out on the best climbs, so I take the calculated risk. Anybody doing this should be conscious that it's at their own risk every time that they cross. Once over the bridge, there is a rapid descent that finnishes with a sharp left hand turn onto a small wooden bridge crossing a 60 foot ravine. Not a good place to find out your brakes are finnished! The view of the river is beautifull at this point! Then I basically ride down the other side of the river for about another 5 km back to the starting point. This isn't extrme mountain biking, but it's a lot more fun than riding on pavement!

Recommended Route:
Just ask anyone in town where "Parc Beausjour" is if you have difficulty finding it!

Other recommended trails in the same area:
There are lots of little trails to discover in this sector. Have fun exploring!
