What is P’tit Train du Nord?

The P’tit Train du Nord is a linear park going through the Laurentians region from north to south for 234km. We can mostly cycle, walk, and even do cross country skiing during winter. The site is managed by a non-profit organization in collaboration with 6 regional county municipalities.

Is the park access free?

Yes, access to the park is free at all times. However, to maintain, patrol and manage the park, the organization is always looking for funds to maintain and improve this beautiful infrastructure. You can help by purchasing a souvenir item from one of our boutiques at the Sainte-Agathe and Prévost stations. You can also contribute by making a donation. You’ll receive a tax receipt for any contribution over $25. We thank you in advance!
