    Sentiers du Moulin

The trail bears its name from the off-grid Californian community and reflects the unique experience anyone will have venturing past the trailhead. Only punctuated by a few ladder bridges and some rock arrangements, the trail truly feels like you are riding down a mile of continous rock, weaving its way through the forest. Its porous granite offers phenomenal grip and rides incredibly well even in wet conditions.

Slab City is born from a partnership between Sentiers du Moulin, Velo Solution Canada and the local volunteer group LBCycle.

---------------------------

"Slab City" est tiré de la communauté marginale Californienne du même nom pour établir un parallèle avec cet endroit mythique offrant une expérience unique au monde à ceux qui s'y aventurent. Ponctué de seulement quelques ponts de bois et enrochements, le sentier est constitué d'une seule dalle géante de granite sur 1.5 km sillonnant la forêt. Le granite poreux qui constitue ce sentier offre une adhérence phénoménale et permet d'être roulé sans crainte sous la pluie.

Slab City est née du partenariat entre Sentiers du Moulin, Vélo Solution Canada et le groupe de bénévoles local LBCycle.

Ce projet a été réalisé en partenariat avec LB-Cycle.

Gestion de projet : Éric Gagnon et Nic Sauvé
Design : Nic Sauvé
Aménagement mécanisé : Vélosolutions Canada (Patrice Dorion et Alex William)
