The Soulanges cycling path is without a doubt the best way to discover the Soulanges canal and its varied landscapes.

Soulanges cycle path

The Soulanges cycling path goes along the canal on its first 23.5 kilometers (from Pointe-des-Cascades to Les Coteaux) and then continues in the Saint-Zotique and Rivière-Beaudette towns, for a total of 35 kilometers of asphalt road.

You’ll find along the way many halts with bicycle repair stations, sanitation facilities, furniture for you to relax and well-present signage to easily orient yourself.

Due to the current sanitary situation, please note that some equipment such as toilets, drinkers and repair stations may be inaccessible. As of May 1, 2021:

  • Open toilets: Pointe-des-Cascades, Les Cèdres, Coteau-du-Lac, Les Coteaux, Saint-Zotique and Rivière-Beaudette

The cycling path on the Coteau-1, 2 and 3 dams will remain closed until further notice for completion of work on the structures. On the other hand, an alternative solution on the Monseigneur-Langlois bridge is now open for the summer period. Access the dike by Chemin du Fleuve and take the crossroads towards the Monseigneur-Langlois bridge.

Maintenance work will take place in the Îles-de-Saint-Timothée regional park during the summer of 2021. We will indicate the closing dates if applicable. For the remainder of the season, the map below shows the state of the network.
