Sections Terres de Miron & Lantiéroise also concerned

Les terres de Miron
The access to this section is now possible only from Val-des-Lacs on a distance of 2,5 km (up to the highest part of this section).

La lantiéroise
This section is actually closed, but part of it is taken care of by the Municipality with free access to their own trail network.

Let’s take stock of the situation

November 24th, 2019

For the last few months, for out of control events, like onlogging and land sales, we had no choice but to close some sections of the path Par Monts et Vals.

In order to give you a complete overview of the situation, here is the information, altogether, as of today, and applicable until further notice.

Les Rangs inachevés
Part of the section, from Ivry to rang 9 is closed for security reasons.

Au Pays de Kaaikop
It is no longer possible to access this section via chemin Galarneau.
Part of the land from there towards Rang 6 has been sold. The new owners do not wish to allow people walk through it for the moment and have put up a few Private Property signs.  Please do respect that guideline.
The Par Monts et Vals panel has also been removed.  The Municipal authorities may eventually conclude a new agreement with the owners.

Closing of La Lantiéroise

For security purpose during the hunting season and upon request by the land owner, the section La Lantiéroise will be closed for an undetermined period as of October 21, 2019.

The hunting season is going on

This year, the hunting season is going on from September 7 to November 15.

During that period, for safety reason, parts of the trails are closed.

LA MACSHANE, completely

About half of PRÉFONTAINE-D’EN-HAUT, starting at chemin Huot.

About half of RANGS INACHEVÉS, starting at rang 9 up to chemin du P’tit Bonheur.

It is very important to comply to this condition requested by owner of the private properties where the trail is passing.  On the other hand, hikers are welcomed on these private properties the rest of the year.

**WARNING – Section closed – Ongoing logging

UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION September 29, 2019

As we do not know yet up to where the logging will extend, we have no choice but to close a larger part of this section.

———————-

A large part of the section Les Terres de Miron will be closed at least for a year during authorized logging.

No passing will be allowed on about three quarters of the trail starting at the entry chemin de la Montagne Noire in Lantier.

However, the other part, starting at chemin Val-des-Lacs in Sainte-Agathe-des-Monts, up to the first point of view, still open for the next season.

Les Terres de Miron – The part circled in red is closed.

Time for good hikes

After the Spring clean-up, some big fallen trees had to be cleared from the way by volunteers.

Mark-ups were refreshed in most sections and even if  some trimming still need here and there, the trail is more than ever ready to welcome you this fall.

**WARNING** Ongoing logging in the Eastern part of Les Terres de Miron. This part will therefore be closed for about a year. (see details under ALERTS)

Thanks again to those named earlier for their work and availability including Jean-Claude and François who joined the “team” lately.

Les Rangs inachevés : clear access

The section LES RANGS INACHEVÉS is now open, accessible and workable from one end to the other.

After the logging close to the rue Degrosbois access, after the bridge, the trail had to be redesigned  and marked to go through the part left fallow before re-entering the forest.  For the time being, red and blue ribbons can be followed easily.

On your way, wood residues and small branches are easy to stamped or stepped over.  In the forest, you may need to push away few branches or go around fallen trees, but nothing will hinder your hike.

A clean-up bee should be organised before fall.

REMINDER :
the part of this section between Rang 9 and chemin du P’tit Bonheur will be closed for the coming hunting season
(September 28-November 15)

Part of La Préfontaine-d’en-Haut temporarily closed

Due to a change of owner, negotiations have to be completed about the right of passage over a part of La Préfontaine-d’en-Haut section.

We are talking of the same part that is closed during the hunting season on 3.8 km starting at chemin Huot in Sainte-Lucie-des-Laurentides (which is up to the higher point of this section).

If you walk starting at the opposite end, from chemin Turdeau, you will have to turn around and come back on your steps at about one kilometer after the shelter (this is where the path starts to go down very seriously  – as a landmark, the sign in place during the hunting season may still there).

Anyhow, this section worth to be walked and explored for the 3 kilometers that still accessible in the meantime, especially for the point of view around the shelter.
