Cycling: The Grandes-Fourches Loop
The Grandes-Fourches Loop is a section of the Grandes-Fourches network, which connects to the Route Verte and the Trans-Canada Trail. This loop intelligently combines and integrates harmoniously with the city’s urban and suburban environment. Its 54 km reveal bucolic and hilly landscapes, but also a flat and wooded path, along the Massawippi, Saint-François and Magog Rivers. Two great stops are possible during your journey, either in the village of North Hatley or by the Lac-des-Nations Boardwalk. There are many attractions around the lake, such as the Art and Mosaic Circuit, the Photo Trail and the Marché de la Gare.
