Your trail needs love… (Clean-up August 24-25-26)

Seasonal trail clean-up August 24-25-26*

Gather your friends and choose your day for this special activity.

Hike through your favorite section (or let us assigne you one).

The needs are…

  • clear the path from fallen branches easy to move, prune if necessary;
  • refresh the markups;
  • note and report heavier jobs (i.e. fallen trees obstructing the path) which will be taken care of by the “special team”**.

* Any other date can be picked-up if these do not fit your agenda.

** If you can supply and operate your own chainsaw, you’ll be welcome within the “special team”.


Please, specify your choice of date and the portion of the trail you prefer, how much time you have and the tools you can bring with you (clippers, pruner, pair of shears, etc.).

Looking forward to see you!

Map printing made easier

April 4, 2017

It is now easier to print the maps of the path and to share the contents of our web site. Indeed, at the foot of every page, buttons were set up to print the page or share the link by e-mail or on Facebook.

Plus, a simple click on the image of a map or on one of the panels (Panneaux du sentier) also allows to see it in its entirety. A right click of the mouse on this enlarged image, gives the option to open it in a new tab.  Once in this new tab, a new right click in the margin allows generally to print it by means of the print manager of your computer, according to your personal parameters.

Other improvements are to come for the summer!
