Course Description

The course of the Trail du Coureur des Bois takes places at the picturesque Duchesnay Resort. The start is on the site of the Resort and goes along the Sentier National, the cottages and all other rustic buildings.

The Oasis Petit Trail

The Oasis Petit Trail goes through the 55-56-57 & 53 trails and ends at the Caribou building. Be careful, roots, tree trunks, small wooden bridges are in abundance and can give you a hard time… even to the most experience runners. The landscape, the small animals and the nature will take your breath away! ,

The Grand Trail

For those who venture into the Grand Trail, you will follow the same route as the Oasis Petit Trail, except that you will leave the small loop at La Halte, to fork in the # 58 trail. You can easily follow the route with the red and white marks on the trees. You will have to go up for about 2K and then slowly wind you way down. On your way, there even more obstacles such as streams, rocks and trees. You will need to stay alert! Around the 8K, you will come across the path used in winter for skiing. It is wider but not necessarily easier. It will take you back at La Halte and then back on the small loop. The finish line is the same as the Oasis Petit Trail.

The Tanguay Kids Trail

The Tanguay Kids Trail is a loop that follows the first kilometer of the Grand and Petit Trail and back to the finish line.
