Located 40km east of Montreal, Rougemont is one of the best places to mountain bike ride with a network of trails all over the mountain. To get oriented, follow the Montee Trail (an old jeep road) from the parking area winding all the way to the top (4km / 390m). Look for a small singletrack at the top leading back down.
Next, circumnavigate the mountain on the longest trail, Principale. There are plenty of side trails on this 4 hour loop.
To reach the mountain biking trailhead from Montreal, head east across the Champlain bridge onto Route 10. After 30km, use exit 37 and follow Route 227 north for 10km. Turn east (right) onto Route de Rougemont (AKA Range de le Montagne) for 5 km. Turn left onto Chemin du Moulin and park at the end in front of the cabane a sucre.
Overall, Rougemont is the 6th most popular mountain bike trail of all 13 mountain biking rides in Quebec. Several of the better mountain bike trails are nearby Rougemont including Ski Bromont, Bromont Ski Area, Val-David and Coaticook Trail.
