On Sunday, July 5th, come and enjoy a beautiful summer walk in farm country between Rigaud and St Eugène.

We will take a circular route via a quiet country road beside a babbling river, along a disused railway track and across a grassy farmer’s field (with the kind permission of the owner).

Please note that about one kilometer of the walk is through knee-high grass which may be wet, so dress appropriately.

It is an easy hike of 9.5 kms on level ground.

To get to the starting point, take exit 12 from the Autoroute 40 and follow the route 342 ouest (Rue St-Jean-Baptiste) through Rigaud.  At the end of the village, pass the two sets of lights and then, immediately after the bridge, turn left at the dépanneur towards St Eugène. Go for  6.4 kms, then turn left on Chemin de la Fourche. Cross the small bridge, turn left and immediately park along the edge of the road on the same side as the river and opposite #391 Chemin de la Fourche. Don’t block access to the house nor the road.

We will meet at 9 am and head out at 9:10.

REPORT:

14 participants. Gorgeous summer morning. 9.5 kms. No incidents.

The hay field between the old railway track and Chemin Haut de la Chute had
been mowed, making easier walking.

Maybe schedule this walk in July again next year.
