We ride on the trails of Club Quadri-Laus and Club quad de l'Outaouais. You can take the Outaouais trail in Buckingham and it will take you to Val-des-Bois (1.5 - 2 hour ride) where you can have meal and gas. From Val-des-Bois there you can go to Notre-Dame-du-Laus and all the way up north to Mont-Laurier. There is also a new trail you can take on "chemin de l'Aigle" about 500' from the intersection of the trail chemin de l'Aigle et chemin Rivière du Sourd. There are signs showing the direction to take. This new trail will take you to le "Club Petite-Nation" in Duhamel. Please note that this trail is crossing a Provincial park very important to respect the regulation on the trail.

Hey,

I ride in Quebec a lot I have a cabin north of Fort Coulonge Quebec, I ride often in the Pontiac. It is all crown land around my camp it is endless.

I would like to check out the Buckingham trails and plan a trip all the way up to Mont Laurier, possibly this winter.

Quebec, I have to say has fantastic trails and scenery. The clubs are very well organized. I went on The Club Quad du Pontiac fall ATV run, it was a lot of fun very good trails and good people.

You can get on the Pontiac trails not far from Ottawa in Luskville.

We went to ride this week-end near Ferme-Neuve (north of Mont-Laurier).We stayed at the Rabaska. Nice cabin price $109 per day per person (breakfast and supper included) the supper is a 4 services and all I can say I must put another 5 pounds on my frame...Very good service and food. Trails are nice but sometimes you share them with snowmobiles. We went to the top of La montagne du diable (Devil's mountain) Superb view. We did about 95km during the day. I can send some pictures if anyone is interested.

Hey polariste, I ride quadris-laus, outaouais and petite-nation. Petite-nation is my favorite in the winter. Zec rapids de joachins is another great place to ride. $8 a day gets you great riding and access to 100 trout lakes. It is accessible by the ontario side across from rolphton.

Hey weaver! that is where i hunt moose! And yeah, its great riding and endless roads... You don't even need a pass there.. Polariste noted trails around Depot-de-l'aigle, and that's where i hunt deer! All of what you both noted is very local to where I live. And weaver, If you want, I'll show you to lake Dumont, which is accessible by truck or trail from your cabin within 60 kilometeres.... You won't beleive what goes on there. Endless trails, and a 3 kilometer long beach which is wide and all white sand. Parties are non-stop, and there is a Rave that is always around the beginning of july. DJ's come from germany, australia etc. Never cops. Access to Otter lake town, or The town of lake cayamant, both have gas stations, restaurants, beer and booze stores etc. There is usually at least 100 people on a slow day, and i've seen on a good day up to 500. When its a busy day, I leave to go riding and sight see. I rarely seen the same road twice in the 3 years i have been there. If wiling, i'll give you directions, bring a tent, food, lotsa beer and booze... And wait for the midnight tradition... Bathing suit optional! (ya, i'm canadian, and lovin' it)

Lac Dumont, tell me more

Hey Fuzzy, seams like a guy I used to work with told about this maybe a decade ago in the lake Cayamant area. He said he used to ride there to check out the sights. If you would not mind passing on some basic directions to get to good place to park and to get to get to the lakes that would be awesome. Always looking for new places to ride.

We rode Notre Dame du Laus a few days after Christmas, most of the trails were closed, too much snow. I was a little disappointed with amount of trails that actually roads.

After Christmas we did a night run from Ange Gardien to Val Des Bois. Il love this trail in the winter, just awesome.

Something weird happened while trying to reply, so if it double posts, it's an accident. Anyways, you may be disapointed in that area because theres tons of roads. They are not maintained roads though, but are on crown land (no cops). We basically ride the roads and search thru side trails. You cant drive more than 1 or 2 minutes before finding a trail. Those trails are there because they usually lead to a lake or swamp. For DIRECTIONS, get to lac cayamant. When travelling thru town (going north) just past the liquor store, go left towards Depot-De-L'aigle. About 8 kilometers in, there's a left turn to dumont. It's clearly marked, cause so many people go there. once on that road, you will travel about 18 kms. Again, it's marked (dumont will be on the right). If you go straight, it brings you thru trails to the towm of otter lake (about 35kms from there. If you don't turn to dumont on the main road, you will travel about 22 kms, and hit ZEC pontiac. 8$ fee to pass thru. A little more to rough camp, or 125 a night to rent a cabin. If you got thru zec pontiac, it brings you thru roads and trails to Fort-coulonge (about 100 kms).. Those are rough trails, although marked. From fort coulonge you can goet to jim's lake rd. It's rough, but trucks get thru. If you travel the jim's for 108 kms you take a left and in another 54 kms straight down that you are in Rapides-Des- Joachims. look up Lac Dumont on google earth. most main roads are clearly visible. These are logging roads, abandoned 10 years ago. most hunters have used them to put trailers on, and have made smaller trails off of them to lakes. Aboslutely TONS of fishing there. tons of fun as well. Most of the fun comes from meeting other people from other places doing the same as you are. Dumont is the main attraction there if you want to relax, fish, get drunk, Or ride around. Hope this helps!

Thanks Fuzzy

Cool, that fuzzy. I looked it up, west of gracefield. We camp/fish at 31 mile lake, so we know the area. Therefore a couple of videos on you tube as well. I might have to check it out. Thanks.

I snowmobiles in Zec rapids de joachins, nice spot as well. I will check out Dumont for sure

new to the trails

Hey everyone,

I am new to the trails and hopefully able to hit them this weekend. Of course I noticed that the trails near my place are closed till July. So I will have to go to lac de L'argile to start my journey. Any helpfull tips would be nice. I also would like to due some quad camping this summer and was wondering if there are areas where to ride and stop anywhere to camp. I prefer wild camping another way to save and able to spend on gas to keep going.

I went three times on Trail 20 From Masson-Anger Up to Val-Des-Bois. This is a very nice trail. Last Sunday we parked at a different location, we started are expedition from the Parking P3 at Lac d'argile(ch. Thomas), we took the 20 for 1hr pointing up north and we turn right at some point to right on chemin de la Riviere du sourd. This is a nice road in sand. This road is wide, you can do a long drift in the corner. We end are trip up to lack Wabassee. On are way back, we fuel by passing by on the 20 at Val-des-Bois. That trail that was joining the 20 to Val-des-bois was at some pint very rough. The fun part was in between the Lac de la Maison and Lac de la Ferme. There was a big pothole of water that it look like a lake to me. it was about 300 feet long and several feet deep. I wasn't sure my 570 will be able to take it. This was my first trip with my 570. I saw guys on Youtube doing a Willy, having their front well above the water. I never thought I will be able to do the same with a 570 stock. it was a amazing experience.

awesome time

Thanks for the info.
I actually went for a ride yesterday. I got to P3 and there was someone unloading his side by side. Then another person showed up while I was removing my atv from the truck. This person happened to be Luc Morin who is a trail volunteer "agent de surveillance". He showed us the trails up to Notre-Dame -Du-Laus. great riding. Very bumpy and only one significant mudhole easily rideable.

It was great plus luc gave me his business card as he and Pierre Vallée organize group rides. But man there was alot of dust. lol

I went for the first time at Fort-Coulonge in Pontiac - an Amayzing location!!!!

This past Friday I decided to go to in the Pontiac. I went to Fort-Coulonge.
The people in the village are very friendly and very nice. Four weller and Side-by-side are all over the place in this city. It's very cool to be there.

I drove that day on local trail and tried the trail 52. In dication are excellent and the trail are fun to drive. I thought to share a pictures of where I went.
When I drove into local trails I was glad to have my GPS. They have a lot in there. Thank for ty Club of Pontiac to keep those trails well maintained
