Le Parc du Massif du Sud - Mountain biking

The Massif du Sud Park offers a network of singletrack bike trails (approximately 20 km) in addition to the so-called multifunctional trails (approximately 30 km), which are gravelled and wide paths winding through the park.

Please note that the territory of the Massif du Sud Park offers mountain biking trails with significant elevation gain and several climbs that require good physical fitness.

The park's singletrack trails are mostly accessible*, meaning that families and cyclists of all skill levels can ride them at their own pace. We recommend the multifunctional trails for those with less experience.

The trails "la Froc d'étoffe" and "L'embardée" are aimed at more experienced cyclists.

It presents challenges with numerous jumps and turns, but will surely appeal to both families and more experienced bikers. What particularly sets our network apart is its compact layout, allowing quick and looped access to all trails.
