Vallée-des-Forts bicycle path

A bike ride in the Haut-Richelieu thanks to the Vallée-des-Forts cycling route!

The Vallée-des-Forts cycling route is 49.2 km long, starting in Vieux-Saint-Jean and finishing at the U.S. border.

Associated with the Route Verte, it's important to note that this is not a bike path. It is a route made up of shoulders on provincial roads and designated pavements on country roads.

Many attractions cross this path, including the Musée du Fort Saint-Jean, a picnic area at the Centre-de-plein-air-Ronald-Beauregard, Place Feller, the Fort-Lennox National Historic Site, and many more!
