Snowmobile trail 597, connecting Murdochville and Gaspé, is ultimately not accessible this winter.
This situation is explained by landslides that occurred last summer on this regional trail. Despite attempts this fall to develop a bypass, it was not possible to restore access between the 2 municipalities.
The new section will require logging operations over a distance of 1.5 kilometers in order to join already existing logging roads.
The work that will be carried out this spring, to restore this section used by snowmobilers, ATVs and vacationers, is estimated at approximately $ 120,000.
