Dear Ramblers,

We are glad to finally be back on the trails!

But we will have to respect the following 

Code of Conduct with respect

to Hiking with a group

during the Covid-19 Pandemic

At all times, you must respect the following rules:

  • If you have any symptoms of Covid 19 (fever, cough, cold) you must stay at home and consider getting tested.
  • You must observe basic hygiene protocols – Wash your hands frequently, cough or sneeze into your elbow or a tissue and avoid touching your face in order to limit the spread of the virus.
  • You must adhere to the physical distancing protocol. Maintain a distance of 2 meters between people and use a face covering or a mask if you cannot maintain the 2m distance.
  • It is best to avoid groups. Hike alone or with others who live in the same household whenever possible. IF you hike as a member of a group, you must maintain the physical distancing protocols (2 m)
  • Always obey the signage – for direction of trails etc.
  • Always bring your hand sanitizer (with no less than 60% alcohol)
  • Sharing of equipment ie trekking poles is not allowed.  You are responsible to bring and carry what you need (ie hydrogel hand sanitizer, trekking poles, sunscreen etc.)
  • Bring and use tissues for sneezing or blowing your nose. Bring a bag to keep your used tissues in. Wash your hands with hand sanitizer after blowing your nose. Bring the bag of used tissues home with you and dispose of them in the garbage.
  • You should arrive at the rendezvous place of the hike in your own vehicle – and ideally only travel with those who are living in the same household.   IF you are carpooling – you may take only one other passenger. You should both wear masks and the passenger must sit in the back seat on the passenger side (diagonally across from the driver.

We reserve the right to exclude any person who does not respect these rules, or anybody who has any kind of flu or cold symptoms.

Please note that we don't accept guests on this hike.

Code of conduct Covid-19

Report:

Par ce beau dimanche ensoleillé, 13 personnes ont participé à cette randonnée semi-urbaine, première randonnée autorisée. Chacun était heureux de marcher en compagnie d'autres membres et les mesures de sécurité ont été bien respectées par le groupe. Même la photo de groupe est prise de plus loin afin d'entrer tout le monde dans le cadre.

Nous avons marché environ pendant 2 h 30 avec de nombreux arrêts pour admirer le lac ou les panneaux signalétiques dans les sections patrimoniales de Pointe-Claire ou Beaconsfield.

À la fin de la randonnée, plusieurs personnes ont décidé d'aller acheter quelque chose à manger et de poursuivre la rencontre en mangeant  ensemble au bord de l'eau.

La température extérieure était d'environ 19 - 20 degrés.
