Club plein air de Caraquet
What to Expect:
Located on land owned by the town of Caraquet, this playground offers mountain bike trails developed with the help of expert consultants to meet the IMBA standard. The trails are enhanced with many berms allowing cyclists to flow in the turns. Since there are few mountains in the region, we focused on the flow to ensure an enjoyable experience for all. All trails can be used in both directions. Bike rental is available on site during opening hours.
The beginner trails are identified with a green circle. They are built to allow a pleasant experience for the whole family. The bridges are wide, the slopes less abrupt and there are few obstacles. Those trails are also closer to the Club. Make noise in the Tintamarre or go on a hunt for the moose ghost in the Forêt noire, it’s guaranteed fun!
The intermediate trails are identified with a blue square. They have many berms and steeper slopes allowing a faster flow. Those trails are still accessible to all with a little vigilance. The popular Clairière is a signature trail with 5 consecutive berms in a scenery full of wild flowers.
The expert trails are identified with a black diamond. The Crête is a loop along an old quarry with steep banks on each side in places. Some sections are really narrow and exposed and there is a dual slalom section with berms followed by table tops. The Cajun offers an agility course through wood and tire obstacles. This trail is accessible to all since obstacles have “chicken runs”. Are you up for the challenge?
