Nouveau* Projet Pilote

À la suite de discussions avec la communauté de vététistes de la région, la CCN augmente l'offre pour l’activité de vélo de montagne en ajoutant 7,8 kilomètres au réseau de sentiers partagés dans le parc de la Gatineau. Il s’agit d’un projet pilote (prenant fin le 30 novembre 2016) sur les sentiers 3, 14 et 33 ainsi que des sections des sentiers 2 et 32.

Cet ajout permet d’améliorer les circuits en boucle à notre réseau de sentiers partagés, ce qui devrait diminuer la pression sur d’autres sentiers.

       Great trail with good flow. IMHO was not super techy and would therefore question the black rating relative to some other trails in the park.

       Not so sure about the black diamond rating but there are a few tricky spots. This is likely one of the best and smoothest trails in the park. If you start form Trail 1 it has a few short, steep climbs then the terrain just becomes fun. It has a roller coaster feel of short ups and a series of smooth, fast downs that will leave a smile on your face. This a a newly opened trail picked from a list of possibles and I think it was a brilliant choice. There is a temporary closure sign on it although I cannot figure out why since the trail was dry with one puddle.

       It's likely going to open soon as there was obvious trail maintenance going on I saw a Bobcat and there was freshly mowed sections on the trail and looks like they were filling in ruts etc. There was one puddle a few inches deep that looks like it will dry quickly.
