On June9th, you are invited to join the Ramblers for a hike which will last about 2 h 30 and  will cover 8.3 km on the Rigaud Mountain. The hike is for intermediate hikers.Trekking poles are recommended. Bring water or juice and have a good breakfast before you come out. We call the circuit that we will follow "La 13".  The climb  is 125 meters.

Rendezvous Sunday  at 9:00 am for a 9:10 am departure in the parking lot at the end of Rue de Lourdes in Rigaud (this is behind the arena).

To get there, take the exit 12 off the 40 for Rigaud. Head west through the town, turn left at the first traffic light and follow the arena signs.

After the hike we usually have lunch at l'Étoile de Rigaud. You are welcome to join us.

REPORT:

We were 20 hikers, all of the proper level. This made for a very enjoyable hike. The mosquitos were not very aggressive. This also contributed to our comfort. Michèle missed the inuksuk that we use to locate the green trail. That resulted in an extra km added to the hike. So to compensate, I took a shortcut via the wet trail. Anne couldn’t resist, she had to wet her feet. So the hike that should have measured 8.3 km ended as 9.1 km.

After the hike 5 or 6 of us shared diner at a Rigaud restaurant. That was very enjoyable.
