The Laurentides Wildlife Reserve sprawls across more than 3,000 square miles of pristine forest in the Laurentian Mountains. Cutting right through the middle of the reserve, the Trans Laurentides Route (PR 175) is a four-lane, divided highway that treats drivers to a scenic ride among clear, unspoiled lakes and rolling wooded hills dotted by rocky outcroppings.

Beginning near Jacques-Cartier National Park, the Trans Laurentides Route (PR 175) enters a vast upland wilderness set aside as the Laurentides Wildlife Reserve. Thousands of lakes and rivers—several visible from the roadway—make the Laurentian Mountains a popular destination for fishing, kayaking and canoeing. In fall, the hills and valleys blaze with autumn color.
