After lunch, we will continue on the Sentier des Lacs trail and then  join the Grand-Duc trail which is  a bit more rustic but still easy. We will end the day with a  stop at the Vieux-Moulin , a historic mill which has been transformed into a teahouse. Bring some money for this treat of teas, coffees and pastries..

REPORT:

Mont St. Bruno

We left the Dorion parking lot at 8:30 a.m.; this meeting point seems to be convenient.

We were on the trails by 10 a.m. 

We were 15 hikers including 3 guests. The weather was wonderful. 

We hiked up  to the lac des Bouleaux; on the way up, we met some park patrollers who checked for our entry tickets.

We had lunch near the lake then set off at 12:15  p.m. towards the Grand Duc trail.  We stopped for a group photo at “la Grotte” which was built by “St. Gabriel Brothers". One person left at this point.

The rest of us went on to the Old Mill where some of us enjoyed a tea or coffee and then returned  to the entry point by  3 p.m. 

We walked 16.2 km in 5h with 2 stops (lunch and coffee break)  and a few short rest intervals.

There were no incidents to report.  Everybody enjoyed their day.

The first part was considered intermediate level because of the climb in elevation;  the rest was easy.
