On Sunday, June 28 join the Ramblers on a hike in the beautiful St.Lazare Pinière.

On this hike, we will walk through a mixed forest and will cover almost 9 km, mainly on flat terrain, except for 2 fairly easy ravines. This hike doesn't present any big difficulty for most walkers.  Nevertheless, we have marked it as Intermediate for the distance and the fact that we will be walking on sandy trails most of the time which is demanding for some walkers. 

Rendezvous at 9:00 a.m. in the parking lot of Les Forestiers Nature park (2800, chemin Lotbinière) for a 9:10 a.m. departure.

Along our road, we might meet riders on horse back. If so, please stay calm but keep talking so the horse realize we are there and don’t look for us deeper in the woods. Make sure not to make any sudden movement or gesture. We will see other small animals on the trails.
