On Saturday July 13th, join the Ramblers and discover an idyllic spot at  Parc régional éducatif du Bois de Belle-Rivière in  Mirabel
 
The Bois de Belle-Rivière Park has an extensive mature forest, including a maple grove and numerous specimens of endangered and vulnerable tree species.
 
While walking the trails, you can admire numerous  forest ground covers; each one very different from another.
 
You will also be treated to a forest garden, an ornamental garden and many serviced areas conducive to resting and contemplating nature. 
 
 
Some of the gravel trails are shared with cyclists whereas the most recently developed cycling paths are not so well known yet. (We may have them to ourselves). 
 
This is an easy hike on flat terrain.
 
We will start the hike on the multisport trail, crossing a mature maple grove which is still in operation, then take the three looped main trail and  conclude with Le Sylvestre, La Prucheraie and sentier des Arts3,  with a stop at the fishing pond and the aquatic garden.
 
Energetic hikers will be able to try the outdoor gym (Gym Nature) for some physical training or  the  Disc golf course.
 
We will have lunch at one of the many picnic areas and those who wish to stay longer may choose to enjoy the Naya beach ($) or try their luck catching trout in the pond at the ornamental garden.
 
 
Facilities, coffee and some light food available at the Welcome Center. Bring insect repellent, sunscreen, water and your picnic lunch.
