Plaisance park - bike and photos

A few photographs from a short trip to Plaisance national park of Quebec:

Plaisance park

The park is a small band of marshes and grasslands with some trees thrown in, sandwiched between highway 148 and the Ottawa river, located ~150km west of Montreal.

Here's the official website: Plaisance park - SEPAQ

You can cycle from Montreal or Ottawa/Gatineau on highway 148. It's busy at times but there's a good shoulder. From Montreal, ride on the quiet highway 344 up to Grenville.

There are two campgrounds in Carillon, a town roughly midway between Montreal and the park. The Carillon municipal campground costs 16$ and the Brownsburg-Chatham municipal campground a little further west is 26$.
