Trails to advance your skills

With its abundant nature, Empire 47 is a real gem for mountain bikers from all walks of life. It is known for its accessibility, because of its proximity to Quebec City, but also because its varied and well-maintained trails allow all cyclists to have fun, especially those who wish to learn mountain biking.

Most trails are connected by an easy/intermediate loop. The enduro tracks, are more fluid and entrenched, as are the jump lines, ideal for cyclists looking for a challenge. There is something for everyone, from beginner to expert!

A large paved and lit pump track located near the reception area will delight cyclists of all skill levels. Another attractive feature for both parents and toddlers: a drop-in daycare service is offered to introduce children to the joys of the outdoors!
