Adventure Near Montreal: Montreal Triathlon

I’m planning a vacation to Montreal, and while I’ve heard lots about its urban charms, I don’t know much about its wilderness access. Where can I play outside within a couple hours of the city?

It’s not what you think. The so-called “Montreal Triathlon” is the city’s trifecta of world-famous, mostly-not-so-healthy delicacies: Montreal-style bagels, poutine, and a classic Montreal-style smoked meat sandwich. They're fatty, packed with calories, and totally worth it. Hit up all three, and then go forth and get some exercise.
