We are a relaxed "no attitude" group of LGBTQ Hikers & Friends who enjoy being outdoors year-round, whether hiking, snow-shoeing, or at blended events: Hike & Bike, Jazz & Walk (Montreal Jazz Festival), Art Walk & others.  Hikers of all levels are welcome. There is "no fee to join group", but for some of the national parks and trails we visit, there may be entrance fees and those will be posted on the event listing.

Attempt at French Translation: 

Nous aimons la randonnée et sommes membres de randonnée d'autres groupes gays, mais n'avons pas pu trouver un à Montréal ou des Laurentides, alors j'ai commencé à celui-ci. Ceci est un groupe de randonnée discret, et les randonneurs de tous les niveaux sont les bienvenus.
