If you’ve tried mountain biking before, you’re likely already hooked. Flying down a hill or mountain at 40 km/h or railing a turn and feeling and hearing every rock and root beneath your tires is an incredible experience. While you may have already felt the allure of British Columbia’s coastal mountain ranges, there is an ever loudening buzz about the growing mountain biking mecca that is Quebec.

Boasting the Laurentian, Chic-Choc, and Appalachian mountain ranges, fast flowing water, and some of the most diverse forests in Canada, it’s pretty clear that Quebec is not only an ideal landscape for any outdoor enthusiast, but a mountain biker’s dream. We’ve laid out the best mountain biking locations in the province below.
