Repairs to the access road by Notre-Dame des Monts
In order to facilitate the accessibility of the site, the access road through Notre-Dame des Monts must be repaired. Once this modification has been made, it will cut several minutes off the journey for people arriving from the West. A bridge is to be installed over the outlet of Lake Nice. Since the beavers are constantly blocking the culvert, water is flooding the road and deteriorating its condition to the point where it is not very passable at the moment.
Construction of mountain bike trails
Our territory is very mountainous. Since mountain biking has many enthusiasts in Quebec, it is important for the association to provide them with a network of trails where they can have fun while enjoying the beauty of the area. A few sites are currently being studied and discussions with Vélo-Québec are underway to develop the best plan.
Extending the Snowshoe Trail
In order to provide an experience worthy of the endurance of great winter athletes, we plan to extend the snowshoe trail to join the Association's current trails. This plan calls for the construction of a footbridge over the Rivière du Gouffre, and the tracing of several kilometres of additional trails.
Construction of Dry Toilets
As the popularity of the site continues to grow, certain observations must be made in terms of health needs. To allow hikers to enjoy nature as clean as possible, we will initiate the construction of dry toilets in strategic places along the trails.
Opening of a new branch of the Waterfalls Trail
Recent exploration has uncovered additional waterfalls on a tributary of the Rivière des Islets. Further expeditions are planned to determine the possibility of a trail at this location as well as the best potential route. Once completed, this trail will be a splendid addition to our trail network.
