On a cold, grey, blustery morning 23 Randonneurs set off westwards along Chemin de la Fourche between Rigaud and St Eugene.

After 20 minutes we ran into a heavy rain shower and three members turned back.

We turned right onto Montée la Grande then right  again onto the path of a previous CP Railway track.

Now we had the wind behind us, the sun broke through the clouds and the walkers enjoyed all the sights and sounds of farmland in springtime.

With a farmer’s kind permission we crossed a grassy field to regain Chemin du haut de la chute and the small bridge over La Rivière Rigaud back to our cars.

The distance of the hike was 9.5 kms.
