Rigaud Foulée du cerf

Welcome back to hiking with the Ramblers!

Please Note: if on snowshoes it will be an intermediate level because of the elevation.  In hiking boots -  difficulty level is easy.

Report:

We had a gorgeous morning for our first hike of 2021. We started with crampons but switched to just boots when the snow got too sticky. We climbed the gentle steady incline of La Foulée du Cerf , stopped at the shelter, then headed along le Haut Lieu trail before heading back the way we came....stopping to make snow angels alongside the trail on the return trip for a total of 7.7km. .
