The Centre Tourisitique et Éducatif des Laurentides will welcome us on Saturday, July 25th for a one day hike through beautiful woodlands.  Displays in the interpretive centre highlight the Centre’s flora and fauna.

We will hike a distance of about 10 km on some of the 8 trails, passing by a peat bog, swamp and under fir trees. The lookouts will give opportunities for the amateur photographer to capture magnificent views. Duration of the hike is about 4 h. All trails are impeccably laid out, with small bridges, footbridges, shelters and lookouts. We will hike the Panoramique, which climbs to an altitude of 220 m (Intermediate) and offers a stirring view of Lac du Cordon and the surrounding mountains. It’s a steep but short climb (change in altitude: 180 m)

The trails are well designed with wooden steps for steep ascents.

We will walk on part of the Tour-du-Lac which skirts around magnificent Lac du Cordon and where little rest areas laid out along the way offer welcome moments of relaxation. We will also take a few  other trails: l’Érablière ( 2km) la Sapinière (1,6 km) and l’Aquatique with its superb wooden bridge where you can see foster logs and venus flytraps.

At the end of Lac du Cordon, we will reach l’Aventurier (Difficult) which leads to the top of a mountain (530 m) and offers a much appreciated view of Lac Renversi. A shortcut will connect us back onto the Tour-du-Lac trail.
