From Drummondville, on the Circuit des traditions route, you’ll cycle along the shores of the Saint-François River (St. Francis River), which flows into Lake Saint-Pierre near Pierreville and Saint-François-du-Lac. On both sides of the River, you’ll enjoy spectacular views and pass through Drummond Forest, which straddles the River in the Saint-Majorique and Saint-Joachim-de-Courval sectors. In Pierreville, a stop at the foot of the bridge is a must : the Parc Lafrenière on the waterfront is a great place to rest. Nearby, a foray into Odanak will help you discover Abenaki culture. Returning via Saint-Joachim, an aerial ropes courses park will delight the whole family, including the most adventurous!
At Saint-François-du-Lac, if you feel like it, go a little further north by taking Principale Street and Rang de l'Île Saint-Jean where a pontoon boat is ready to take cyclists across the river. In this sector, you can see the majestic Lake Saint-Pierre.
