Between the Ottawa River and the hills of the Laurentian Shield, the Cycloparc PPJ offers a unique concept combining bike path and park on more than 90 kms in Pontiac, Quebec.

Built on the old Pontiac Pacific Junction (nicknamed the Push Pull and Jerk) railroad tracks, the Cycloparc PPJ (PPJ 1 on the map) offers a relatively flat ride, enjoyable and accessible for the whole family.

This 92-km off-road trail, which is for the exclusive use of cyclists and hikers, crosses the Pontiac between Bristol to the East and l’Isle-aux-Allumettes to the West. The agricultural and forest landscapes, wetlands, exceptional views of the Ottawa River and the small authentic and welcoming communities it intersects, make it a trail of contrasts and discoveries.
