The third section is the most challenging, with an elevation of 1,357 m and a distance of 103 km. From Tremblant, riders do a short loop to downtown Saint-Jovite. From there, they take the superb Chemin Duplessis alongside rivière du Diable until they get to Lac Supérieur, then the legendary Chemin du Nordet, ending the ride in Saint-Donat with a lap around Lac Archambault. The timing and fuel/aid station is located in the heart of the village of Saint-Donat.
STEP 4 : Saint-Donat - Lac Ouareau - Tremblant
The last section, before returning to Tremblant, starts on Highway 25 South and does a lap around Lac Ouareau before coming back toward Tremblant, still on Chemin du Nordet, passing through the municipality of Lac Supérieur and along the sinuous Chemin Duplessis. With one last small loop through the old Tremblant village on Montée Ryan, the riders complete the official course and the 404 Challenge. Participants registered in the 808 Challenge embark on their second loop of the 404 km route.
