There are several ways to access the Downtown Trails. The best is by parking in the parking lot next to the walking bridge. To get to the parking lot take exit 18 on Route 2. Head towards downtown on Boulevard_hébert that turns into Rue de l'Église (Route 120). Just before the bridge crossing the Madawaska River turn left onto Rue Victoria. Travel 300 meters and just after crossing the railroad tracks turn right into the parking lot.

You can also park on the other side of the river by continuing across the bridge on Rue de l'Église (Route 120). After you cross the bridge take your first left at the lights. When you get behind the building turn left again. Cross the parking lot and park close to where the trail enters the tunnel.
