KNOW HOW TO VENTURE
OUT ON TRAILS
Only "Trail" motorcycle members who purchase a daily, three day or season trail permit can ride on the FQMHR's federated trail network.
Please note that the daily, three day or season trail permit does not allow free transit through the federated trails on the zecs and that you must pay additional costs on each zec.
Two categories of motorcycles are eligible on trails: the dual-use motorcycle with road-use registration and the off-road motorcycle commonly known as the "enduro" with off-road registration.
Federated trails are generally accessible from May 1st to November 30th inclusively. Weather conditions or hunting season can affect traffic at certain times in regions of the FQMHR's federated trail network.
The season trail permit, issued by the FQMHR, is available on our website only.
A trail permit replacement is needed when you change your motorcycle or if you loose the permit sticker. Ask FQMHR for trail permit replacement procedure.
The daily trail permit, issued by the FQMHR, is available on our website or from an agent of a trail club member.
The three day trail permit, issued by the FQMHR, is available on our website only.
The network boasts of more than 12,500 kilometres of federated trails shared by 54 trail club members across 12 tourist regions of Quebec.
iMotoHR is a GPS-based mobile application aiming to make off-road motorcycling as pleasant and safe as possible.

To go trail-riding on a motorcycle, you must use an off-road motorcycle or a dual-use motorcycle.
