Biking

Portneuf remains a popular destination for biking. Particularly popular in the summer and fall, the Route verte runs along the sumptuous St.Lawrence River. Opt for one or more of the countless country roads winding through the backcountry...

Located on the former railway track between Saint-Gabriel-de-Valcartier and Rivière-à-Pierre, the 68 km Jacques-Cartier/Portneuf bike path offers picture-postcard viewpoints. The multifunctional Dansereau/La Liseuse 15 km trail follows the meanders of the beautiful Jacques-Cartier River between Pont-Rouge and Sainte-Catherine-de-la-Jacques-Cartier. From Deschambault-Grondines to Saint-Ubalde, the Portneuvoise bike path finally combines the bucolic landscape of the agricultural plain with the pleasure of family bike rides. The 88-km route goes mainly via designated roadways and paved shoulders.
