On Saturday March 28th, the Ramblers Association invites you to step back in time and be a ''coureur des bois'' also known as a “runner of the woods”. Whether we will wear boots, crampons or snowshoes will depend on trail conditions. The hike will begin at the "Chalet de l'Escapade" on Franciscaines street and will end at the "Sucrerie de la Montagne" on rang St-Georges.

You can go up the mountain at your own pace. When you feel that you have gone far enough, you can just turn around and head back down to the Chalet. The trail is well marked and easy to follow. Those who reach the Sucrerie, will have hiked 5.2 km. It will be another 5.2 to do the return trip to the chalet. We will ensure that everyone gets back safely to the Chalet.

Be sure to have a good breakfast before the hike, that way, you will not run out of energy going up the hill...

Rendezvous at 9 a.m. in the parking of "Chalet de l'Escapade", 15 rue du Boisé des Franciscaines. The hike will begin at 9:10 a.m. The hike duration will depend on your fitness level and on the trail conditions.

After the hike, you are invited to join us for lunch at L'Étoile  de Rigaud.
