La Pioche was one of the first hand-built trails built by Velocipeg cycling club. La Pioche means "the pick". After digging out a trail with hand tool we were all a little injured and convinced of the need for machine built trails! La Pioche is a beautiful singletrack cross-country trail.

Access Info

Access by Rue Eden to main parking lot of Mont Bechervaise Ski Area. The trail starts at the extreme left corner of the parking lot.
