National Trail in Québec, SNQ

snq2013

The National Trail in Québec (referenced online as SNQ, or Sentier National au Québec) is a combination of trails stretching largely through the forest mountains north of the St. Lawrence River. The trail is developed by a number of smaller parks, municipalities and organizations along it’s length, but is overseen by Rando Québec, formerly the Québec Federation of Walking.

During the transition to Rando Québec, it has become a little harder to find detailed path info online. It is clear however that suggestions that the path is actively in development are accurate. When one examines the maps available through Rando Québec, it’s also clear that while the path does utilize some non single track woods trails, there seems to be a deliberate intention to stick to single track forest path whenever possible.
