Summary:
I rode this trail on April 29th of this year, which is probably not peak season for this place.

The trail looks well laid out, has some nice xc riding with decent challenge and speed. This is not downhill, you are expected to peddle.

The trail was in need of some maintenance dealing with overgrowth, there were quite a few muddy sections where you could get bogged down, some sections that are just plain mud water but they have laid out wooden logs left to right in some places so you can still make it through. There were plenty of signs on the trail, but they were confusing at times, and also a board with a map at the entrance.

This trail would be much much better with a bit more maintenance, but as I said before this is probably not peak season.

The worst thing about this trail by far were the amount of mosquito's and black-flies. It wasn't just a nuisance because I don't like bugs, there were literally hundreds around you in about 3 seconds after stopping your bike for a rest or say.. to pull it out and through the next 30 feet of impassable very wet mud. As we rode along the trail over the leaves you could see them flying out from the wet underbrush, they would literally wake up wherever you go.

I have spoken to others who have ridden it about this trail and they say a good time to go would be early August as the trails are maintained and the flies are less of a problem.

Probably not worth going to every weekend from Montreal, if you're the kind of person that likes to see for yourself it's definitely worth it.

Summary:
Excellent site de cross country ! 2 choix de parcours, un parcours de mtb et un pour hybride (5km). Celui de mtb se divise en 2, il y a le difficile et le facile. La piste est longue d'environ 11km, par endroit extremement boueux. Les chemins sont rapide et il y a plusieurs bosses et changement de niveau sur la piste. Les jours pluvieux assurez vous d'avoir de bon pneus avec du mordant. Point négatif, il y a vraiment beaucoup de maringouins et de mouches noires. Il faut absolument utiliser un produit anti insecte! Plusieurs arbres sont tombés et n'ont pas été enlevé lorsque je suis allé. La propriétaire m'a assuré qu'ils ne resteraient pas la longtemps. A l'entré près du chalet il y a un boyau pour laver les vélos. Vraiment utile car un lendemain de journée de pluie, les sentiers étaitent extremement boueux ! A partir du début septembre 4$ d'entrée avant cette date, c'est gratuit ! C'est un excellent site pour s'entrainer, les chemins sont très bien indiqué avec des panneaux. A essayer !!

Summary:
For summer of 2006 - they are not charging any fees to use the trail system, due to too many mosquitos and black flies (I agree!), and a lot of the trails are swamped in mud. What they have done is created a looping trail - used by the Gary Fisher Cup team - about 4km long that you can race your buddies like crazy. This is not a mountain so no real climbing here. Bring tons of bug repellant and water!
For beginners to intermediates, you get a bit of everything in there - great for racing.

Recommended Route:
Take Highway 40 from Montreal - go east towards Repentigny and follow the signs from the Highway to Presqu'ile. If you deter from this, beware cause you can easily get lost as there seems to be only one sign system to direct you there.

Summary:
Well i guess it a fine and clean trail with alot of everything, but... it aint worth the 3.50$ fee, not that im cheap. But i completed the track in 45 min and did it a secoond time till i got bored and left. It not that it a boring trail, but it is a really easy one i wouldnt put this one has a intermediare. Any newbie can ride this, and if u looking for a practice u better do it 2 or 3 time

Other recommended trails in the same area:

Summary:
An amazing XC trail for a good complete physical challenge. This trail as a lot of everything: bumps, roots, mud. The first 2 miles a quite smooth, but after keep focus on the track cause their is a lot of bumps, turns, ups, downs. It is a good trail for practice..

Recommended Route:
Highway 40, exit 97, follow the blue sign: sentiers de la presqu'ile
