Rural  Saint-Lazare
Leader: Martin Hofton 

Distance: 11.5 km

Level: Easy (with some steep banks to climb)

On Sunday July 7 we will hike a circular route between Côte St Charles and Chemin du Fief.

Much of this hike will be on private property with the kind permission of the landowners. It will give you a chance to enjoy parts of our beautiful landscape which you would not normally have the opportunity to see.

The hike will be 11.5 kms. There are some muddy sections and three short but steep banks to climb and a stream to cross. Otherwise the route is flat. Wear good boots and bring water and mosquito repellent. Long sleeves and long pants are recommended since the mosquitoes can be ferocious in the woods.

We will meet at 9 am for a 9:10 start, from the parking lot of Parc Saddlebrook on Woodbine in St Lazare. Take exit 22 from Autoroute 40 and go south towards St Lazare. After the Ultramar and Tim Hortons turn left at the first stop sign onto Bugle Call, then second left onto Woodbine. After 200m turn left into the parking for Parc Saddlebrook.

REPORT:

On a warm humid morning, 27 randonneurs participated in a circular hike around the lanes and fields of St Lazare.

Starting from Côte St Charles our route took us via Pine Tree, Harwood Lane and Fief. The woodland trails and fields in between were by kind permission of the landowners.

We maintained a leisurely pace so that all participants kept each other in sight. There were some muddy and wet patches, and the mosquitos were a nuisance in the woods. However, all members seemed well protected with mosquito repellent.

Starting out at 9:10 am, we were back at our cars at 11:50. The hike length was 11.5 kms.
