“Gateway to Quebec's Eastern Townships”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

Ride it for about 6 miles up to the border, where it ends, and make a right for about two miles. Make a left on the next street that you can, and hand your passport to the Canadian border guards. About a mile north of the border, make a right onto the continuation of the same abandoned raliway, which is now called the Sentier Nature Tomofobia. After about 12 miles, It ends at Ayer's Cliff, Quebec. Nearly all of this is on traffic-free gravel bike paths, which are relatively flat. Skinny-tire road bikes are not the best choice. I put knobbies on mine, and it worked well. From Ayer's Cliff, strong cyclists can traverse challenging hills to connect to other quaint towns (e.g., Magog & North Hatley), and the Route Verte.
