Le Massif de Charlevoix
Get carried away by gravity
Le Massif de Charlevoix is now a major mountain biking destination. Located at the entrance of the Charlevoix region, it offers a majestic and unique setting to experience exhilarating moments. The omnipresent nature, views of the St. Lawrence River, the longest vertical drop east of the Canadian Rockies, and the winding turns ensure fun for everyone.
Mountain bikers of all levels will enjoy Le Massif's network of trails accessible by ski lift offering breathtaking panoramas. Skill zones at the top and base of the mountain allow beginners to practice the basics before embarking on long descents, while technical and steep trails will satisfy the more adventurous bikers. Although the main access is at the top, the mountain is also accessible from the base.
An extended stay at Le Massif de Charlevoix to ride and discover the region is highly recommended, with many nearby attractions such as hiking, canyoning, and Le Vol de l'Oiseau Mechanical, the world’s first night-time carousel located on a mountainside.
Note: The last lift for visitors parked at the base of the mountain is at 4:30pm
