2012-04-01 Rural walk near Saint-Eugene

Chemin de la Fourche (May 2011)

Leader: Martin Hofton

Length: 12 km

Level: Easy

On Sunday, April 1st, we will enjoy a rural walk in farm country alongside the Rivière Rigaud between Rigaud and St Eugène.

It will be an out-and-back hike along the same road, (called Chemin de la Fourche). The total distance is 12 kms, but you can turn around at any time and return to your car without getting lost.

To get to the starting point, take exit 12 from the Autoroute 40 and follow the route 342 ouest (Rue St-Jean-Baptiste) through Rigaud.  Pass the two sets of lights and then, immediately after the bridge, turn left at the dépanneur towards St Eugène. Go for  6.4 kms, then turn left on Chemin de la Fourche. Cross the small bridge, turn left and immediately park along the edge of the road on the same side of the river and opposite #391 Chemin de la Fourche. Don’t block access to the house nor the road.

We will meet at 9 am and head out at 9:10.

Members should have their card at each hike. Payment for membership fees  by check only.
