The Corridor Aérobique is a 58 kilometre linear trail that runs along the former CN railroad bed between Morin-Heights and St-Rémi-d’Amherst.

The Corridor Aérobique runs through a wide variety of countryside. It follows mountain contours, runs through dense forests, traces valleys and farmers’ fields, and touches the shores of many lakes, rivers, and waterfalls.

In 2008, the Corridor Aérobique joined the Route Verte and is now free to cyclists.

This multi-use trail may be enjoyed by walkers and cyclists from June to mid-October. The park is managed by the MRC des Pays-d’en-Haut during this period.

The trail bed which is made up of a wide path of crushed compact stones is deemed an intermediate trail for cyclists. Hybrid bicycles or mountain bikes are recommended.

During the winter season, a 9-kilometre section of the trail from Morin-Heights to Montfort is maintained by the Municipality of Morin-Heights as an easy cross-country ski trail. The Corridor is also the backbone to Morin-Heights’ 165 km of cross-country ski trail network. Consult the cross-country skiing and snowshoeing section of this website for additional information concerning the ski network.
