The hike

Leaders: Claude & Michèle

Distance: 4 to 9 km

Ascent: 50 m

Level: Beginner to intermediate (Levels of difficulty for hikes)

Rendezvous: at 9:30 am at Érablière Saint-Henri, 960 chemin St-Henri, Ste-Marthe.  From HWY 40, take the 201 south to chemin St-Henri, from HWY 20 take the 201 north to chemin St-Henri. Drive approximately 7 km on St-Henri to reach the Sugar Shack.

For the hike, we will divide into two groups.

One group will walk at a faster pace and for a longer distance. The second group may not walk the full distance and will go at a more leisurely pace. Both groups start off from the sugar shack, heading along their private trail to the Lac Des Castors.

From there we will walk northward to the yellow Escapade trail, then eastwards towards the "Haut Lieu". At 10:40 the slower group will turn back and head toward the sugar shack. The faster group should have time to reach the "Haut Lieu" and return to the sugar shack where they will join the leisurely paced group in time for the 12 noon sitting.

The sugar shack

After the hike, you are invited to join us for an enjoyable  traditional Quebec spring meal at the "Érablière St-Henri" sugar shack. Cost is $25 and includes taxes. Payment is cash or debit card. Alternately, you may join us for this fun event even if you choose not to hike on this day.
