Hop on your bike and explore the Pontiac…

Built on the old Pontiac Pacific Junction 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.

Themed Routes

The "Routes" tab in the main menu provides information on eight alternative routes accessible from the PPJ 1. These off-trail routes lead to recreation destinations, such as beaches, or to tourist attractions, such as the magnificient Chutes Coulonge.

Whether you cycle the PPJ 1 or one of the suggested thematic routes, you will travel through important natural habitats known for their exceptional and diverse wildlife and flora. Don't be surprised to happen upon some of the most beautiful landscapes in the Outaouais.
