Evening MTB Trails - Montreal Area

For those of you who know the montreal area - especially the West-Island.

I haven't done much XC MTB in Montreal so I am looking for great ideas to where one can
find nice trails for evening XC MTB or short weekend MTB.

I can take your ideas for nice weekend outings too. I know a place in Prevost in the north and
a nice place near Eastman in the Eastern Townships.

where do yo guys all go?

I was looking for a XC MTB trail listing on the net earlier but could not find a lot of local stuff.

OKA apparently has a decent trail. I had come across a listing of Quebec trails on a web page. I saved the link on my home PC, I'll post it up later. Around the Montreal area there isn't a whole lot, you have to drive out to Oka, Rougemont, etc. to get to any other trails.

You should also check out the local forums (clubveloepic.org - local MTB club I just joined) and (http://www.leyeti.com/09/index.php - Le Yeti's club heads out every Tuesday night for rides).

I used to live in Montreal for about 20 years and I find that it has few good places to mountain bike. The best one I know (and rode there quite a lot) is Bromont. I lived on the South Shore, so it was only a 45 minute drive. I still go skiing there quite a lot, even if now I live in Toronto.

Bromont trails can be very rocky and rough. They also have some outstanding DH, if you are into that.

Here's the link I promised earlier - "Mountain Biking in Quebec" http://pages.infinit.net/endo99/index.html

As serious said, Bromont has great trails: http://skibromont.com/velo-accueil.asp
