Origine du nom : ce sentier tire son nom du fait que pendant son aménagement, la surface du sentier était presque quotidiennement abimée par des traces d’orignal (Buck).
La Trail du Buck est un sentier classé intermédiaire, pas tant à cause d’obstacles présents sur le sentier ou de descentes / montées difficiles, mais plutôt à cause du fait que la première moitié du sentier s’effectue en montée graduelle, avec certains virages serrés. En y allant à votre rythme, vous serez probablement capable de parcourir ce sentier peu importe votre niveau. De ce fait, la Trail du Buck tend plus vers un sentier débutant qu’intermédiaire.

Tel que décrit ci-haut, la première partie du sentier monte graduellement, parfois en surplomb du ruisseau Beaudoin, empruntant au passage quelques sections de trottoirs en bois. Par la suite, la descente (tout aussi graduelle) s’amorce, avec plusieurs virages profilés et quelques sections rocheuses. Rien de trop difficile par contre!
La Trail du Buck est un sentier entièrement en forêt (mixte), majoritairement feuillue. Ce sentier permet de rejoindre la Serpentine (3) ou de revenir vers le Chauffe-moteur (1) puis l’accueil du parc.

------------------------English version ---------------------------

Origin of the name: The name 'Trail du Buck'' comes from the fact that while the trail was being built in October 2014, it was quite often damaged by moose (Burk) tracks in the overnight. Hence the name (The buck trail).

The Trail du Buck is rated moderate (blue square), not so much because of obstacles or difficult climbs / descents along the way, but more so because it gradually climbs for the first kilometer or so, with some tight turns. If you go at your own speed, you will very likely be able to ride this trail whatever your level. Therefore, the Trail du Buck leans more towards an easy than a moderate trail.

As stated above, the first part of the trail gradually climbs, sometimes just next to the river, with some boardwalks on the way. Afterwards, the descent starts gently, with several berms and a few rocky sections, but nothing too difficult (and always with an alternative lane).

The Trail du Buck is located entirely in a mixed forest, and allows to reach the Serpentine (3) or the Chauffe-Moteur (1) trails.

       Great Intermediate single track. Steady, even, climbs and decents. Occasional bolders or drops, but always with an easy way around. Good gravel/dirt surface with scattered rocks. Very few roots.
