Bike Trip To Fort De Chambly | Bike Trip out Of Montreal

Discovering a Historical Site Close To Montreal

Montreal is one of the oldest cities in North America. As it is now celebrating its 375th anniversary, it makes it even more interesting to learn about its history.

30 kilometers southeast of Montreal, lies the historic Fort Chambly.

The fort was strategically built back in 1665, in order to protect travelers on the river from the Iroquois. The Iroquois were a powerful northeast Native American confederacy.

This is a great visit for all ages.  I saw as many kids as senior people enjoying Fort Chambly. As much as I love the historical aspect of the fort, what I enjoyed most was bike riding there. It takes only two hours to reach the fort and two hours to head back. It is a clear bike path with lots of greenery.

See below for the map, location and some pictures.
