    Points of Interest Some of the old railway stations have historical exhibits. Mont-Tremblant is a massive four-season resort with all types of outdoor activities. The northern section of the trail is in a more wilderness location giving a better chance of viewing wildlife. In the north there are also signs describing the history of the region at many of the rest stops. Since the trail opened in 1996 many of the old railway stations have been restored and converted into rest stops and historic museums

    History of the Trail
  • FROM A RAILWAY TO A LINEAR PARK: Le P'tit Train du Nord make its last passenger journey on November 15, 1981 and the last freight train ran in 1989. Due to collective efforts from 1987 onwards, the Linear Park was inaugurated in 1996 Le P'tit Train du Nord Railway was the dream of the legendary Saint-Jérôme priest Antoine Labelle. It was also the hope of the colonists who came to open new parishes. The P'tit Train du Nord was an incentive to develop the tourist industry in the Laurentians. The arrival of the first trains created holiday villages. The unprecedented success of the P'tit Train du Nord reached a peak between 1920 and 1940 when Canadian Pacific innovated with "snow trains". Montreal skiers, eager for nature and fun, now had the opportunity to take the train every weekend heading for the Laurentians to ski, the new "in" sport.
