Snowshoe Hike in Rivière-Beaudette

Leader: Sylvain Cardinal

Tail leader : Denise Auclair

Level: Easy

Distance:  About 5 km

Let's start winter with an easy hike on the trails of Rivière-Beaudette. We will walk a distance of 5 km, with snowshoes or good boots if the snow cover is too thin.

Hikers with a GPS will be able to tell us the exact distance of this trail after the hike. 

We will meet at 9:00 a.m. for a departure at 9:10 a.m.

Direction

Take Highway 20 west towards Ontario. Take Exit # 2, turn right on Main street, turn left on Sauvé, cross the bridge, turn right on Chemin Ste-Claire, and then left on rue Léger.

The firts building on the left is a municipal garage with a red roof.

Park your car in the parking lot. 

If you are new to snowshoeing you will be very welcome. There will be plenty of experienced members to help you. We just ask that you familiarize yourself with the bindings of your snowshoes and know how to put them on and take them off.

If you do not have snowshoes yet, but would like to try out the sport, you can rent a pair at different sports places in the Vaudreuil-Soulanges area.

REPORT:

On December 22, four people met at 9:00 a.m. for the first snowshoe hike in Rivière-Beaudette. 

We thought we would have to open the trail on snowshoes but we were pleasently surprised to see that the trail was already groomed.

The walk was easy and nice as we were very protected from the cold wind by the trees. 

Thanks to Claude GPS, we were able to measure the trail; the distance is 5.1 km.

The entrance is free and the trail is well marked. 

I took some pictures (see below) and Claude will give a  GPS map of this trail.
