A tourist and recreational trail designed along an old railroad between Bois-des-Filion and Mont-Laurier, this 230 km (143 mi) corridor provides a north-south crossing through the magnificent Laurentian region. Summer activities include cycling, hiking, and inline skating; winter activities include snowmobiling between Labelle and Mont-Laurier (93 km/58 mi), and cross-country skiing between Saint-Jérôme and Val-David (40 km/25 mi, classic and ski skating); mechanical maintenance and easy level. All along the trail, railway stations have been renovated and many have been converted into welcoming cafés and rental and repair shops for sports equipment. bonjourquebec.com

Rail or Trail or “First-world Problem”?
All the “very cool, passionate, community-minded people” on both sides seem to have ignored a third-option – Rail-biking.
Richard B. did this back in the 90’s – A Ride on the Adirondack Railway.
Non-motorized Re-Use. Leave the tracks. Get rid of the train. A healthy, cost-efficient, and non-polluting activity.
As far as I can tell from my very brief research, Lake Placid, NY to Remsen, NY could be the longest Rail-biking trip in the world. Ride On!
Enjoy these Rail-biking videos.
Anyway, don’t do this here – you could get injured or die.
It might be illegal too, you could get arrested.
