What we're about

On weekends, we'll be skiing and boarding in winter; hiking, biking and roller blading in summer. On weeknights, indoor climbing, hill running or maybe a dinner, plus other events. Travel ideas include skiing in Europe or out West, hiking to Machu Picchu or the Dolomites, or a weekend nearby to kayak in the Thousand Islands.

Boo! Hallowe'en hiking Le Nez d'Indien + Montagne Verte: 16 km, 800m elev. gain

It's time again to beat the Pandemic blues and get outside on top of a mountain! We'll be hiking Le Nez d'Indien with its fine rocky summit overlooking Lac Tremblant. Then, on the way back we'll head over to La Montagne Verte to enjoy more views. Two summits on Hallowe'en! We will be respecting the 2-metre physical distancing protocols at all times. Masks are unnecessary while hiking, however you are free to wear one if you choose to, The trailhead is here: https://goo.gl/maps/5ZhDg21VikTX5zRs5 Parking is anywhere along the road, however we'll meet exactly at the trailhead at 10:00am. If it is busy on the trails, there will be a lot of cars parked, so you may need to park 500+ metres away from the trailhead, so allow enough time. Arrange to arrive by 9:40am! This hike will be a great opportunity for those hikers who have been hiking easier hikes (12 - 15 km) with other groups and would like to advance to the next level. This hike is also a great opportunity for the more experienced hikers to enjoy the relatively easier hikes of the nearby colourful Lanaudiere and Laurentians areas! Ascent: Total elevation gain is unknown, but somewhere in the 750m - 850m range, making this a moderate hike. If you have not recently hiked more than 12 km, this hike is not for you. We will be hiking for five hours. The drive will take about 1 hour 30 minutes. IMPORTANT DETAILS: 1.
