Soulanges Bike Path

35 km of cycling, art and heritage

Discover the region’s rich heritage and scenic beauty along the 35 km of the Piste cyclable Soulanges. This bike path is entirely paved and follows the eastern portion of the Soulanges canal for nearly 22 km, immersing you in its splendour and history. Stretching from Pointe-des-Cascades to Rivière-Beaudette, this multi-use trail offers cyclists fascinating glimpses into the past, such as the vestiges of the old hydroelectric generating station, known as “Le Petit Pouvoir,” the locks and the lighthouses. This bike path is part of Route verte No. 5 and connects to the Waterfront Trail in Ontario.

 

The Piste Cyclable Soulanges remains a favourite destination for families. Take advantage of those sunny summer days to hop on your bikes and enjoy a family bike ride. Admire spectacular landscapes, discover nearby points of interest accessible by bike and enjoy a picnic in any number of picturesque spots along the way. For a refreshing frozen treat to beat the heat, make a pit stop at one of our fabulous ice cream parlours or dairy bars!

 

Parking spots are available in several municipalities along the bike path:

Pointe-des-Cascades: On Chemin du Fleuve (in front of the church and in front of Saint-Pierre Park) or just off Highway 338 in front of Rue Claude.

Les Cèdres: On Chemin Saint-Antoine (south of the intersection with Highway 338) and Chemin Saint-Féréol (north of the intersection with Highway 338)

Coteau-du-Lac: Paul-Stevens Park (Rue Saint-Emmanuel) and downtown (parking lot across from 20 Rue Principale)

Mountain biking & BMX

Mont Rigaud is one of the few places in the Montérégie where you can go mountain biking. The mountain has 16.5 km of cross-country trails ranging from beginner to expert. If you want to give the sport a try but don’t have the equipment, rentals are available at the base of the mountain.

Kids and grown-ups alike love coming to the Centre de la nature quatre-saisons  in Coteau-du-Lac, which offers several kilometres of mountain bike trails as well as a closed circuit pump track for BMX bikes.
