Val-Saint-François

Richmond - Danville - Warwick

This route is built on a former railway and is a leg of the Route Verte. Between Richmond and Danville, you’ll ride through agricultural fields—a calming, quasi-meditative experience if we do say so ourselves! Good to know: In Danville, the Welcome Centre connects onto a bike workshop. And between Danville and Warwick, you’ll have the option ride the bike path to Kingsey Falls, an utterly charming village.

  • Unpaved bike path 39km
  • 78 km (Round trip)
