L’axe de la Magog is a 33 kilometers path that starts at the junctions of the Magog River and the Saint-François River, in Sherbrooke’s city center, and follows the Magog River all the way to the Memphrémagog cycling path.
This path offers cyclists many fascinating activities. Right from the beginning, where the Magog River and the Saint-François River meet, cyclists find themselves at the heart of Sherbrooke’s first industrial centre.
A few kilometres farther, the Parc Lucien-Blanchard offers a plethora of activities for the whole family like picnic areas, beach volleyball courts and a sandy beach. Also, a stop at the Maison de l’eau is the perfect opportunity to learn more about the life of reptiles and amphibians in the various marshes around Sherbrooke.

Please note that a municipal bylaw states that it is mandatory for anyone younger than 18 years old to wear a helmet while on a bicycle on the entirety of the Sherbrooke territory, including the urban promenade, the multifunctional trails and the cycling paths. Also note that the person in charge of a minor has the obligation to ensure that the minor respects this regulation. Anyone caught contravening this bylaw could be fined.
