La Campagnarde

  • La Campagnarde

Built on a converted railway and incorporated into the Route verte (No. 4), La Campagnarde is a major bike path connecting the Centre-du-Québec, Eastern Townships and Montérégie regions. It links Drummondville to Foster, passing through many municipalities including Wickham, Saint-Théodore-d’Acton, Acton Vale, Roxton Falls, Roxton, Roxton Pond, Warden and Waterloo. Magnificent landscapes abound along La Campanarde. Many stops with picnic tables are available for bike tourists to take a break and enjoy lunch. On the Drummond RCM end, La Campagnarde connects with the Circuit des traditions, a 183-km cycling network that criss-crosses the territory. The network serves 14 of the RCM’s municipalities with 4 regional loops. In the Acton RCM, two unmarked roadway circuits (L’Orée des Bois, 45 km; La Clé des Champs, 63 km) can be accessed via La Campagnarde, providing a connection between all the municipalities. In La Haute-Yamaska RCM, La Campagnarde connects with L’Estriade and La Montérégiade, enabling bike tourists to visit other regions in the province.
