The Upper-Laurentians are renowned for their impressive snowmobile trail networks. To reach the Relais, it is possible to leave from Mont-Laurier for a circuit totalling approximately 25 kilometers to the top of the mountain. To get there, simply take the trails T63 for 3.3 km, T13 for 14 km and L for 7 km. You can also take a short detour to see the Windigo Falls and then return before sunset.
It is also possible to climb to the top of the mountain with your favorite RV. Safe and developed quad trails will allow you to organize your departure from Mont-Laurier. The shortest trail is 23 km to the driveway using the 2516, the 20 and back to the 2516 in order. You can also combine it with a circuit, such as the Devil’s Mountain circuit, which totals 95 km and also takes you through the CIP towers.
Various merchants offer snowmobile and quad equipment rentals so that you can fully experience the winter in our region.
