DAY ONE → Drive to Parc Regional Montagne du Diable in the morning, and have lunch by Windigo chutes. Chill out on the beautiful beach for a bit while we make sure everyone has all of the proper equipment and their bags are packed properly. Then we will do a short 6.2 km hike to the campsite with a small elevation gain. 5.4 km into this hike there will be another waterfall that we will stop to admire, Walter chutes. After arriving at the campsite, we will set up tents, begin to prepare dinner, and for those who are brave enough, there will be the option to go swimming! We will end the night with bonding time by the fire, and of course marshmallows.
DAY TWO → Break camp in the morning, breakfast, 7.8 km hike to the second campsite. This is the day with the most elevation gain, approximately 450 m. We can have multiple groups depending on readiness of froshies/speed/experience level. We will stop somewhere scenic along the way to have lunch and enjoy the view. 6.4 km into the hike, we will take a quick break at the summit of Mount Diable, one of the best viewpoints in the park! We will arrive at the second campsite in the afternoon and have time to do a bunch of fun games and activities. Once again, we will have a nice campfire in the evening to end this long day.
DAY THREE → Break camp in the morning, breakfast, 8.9k hike to our final destination, Mountain lake. This is mostly downhill (yay!) so it shouldn’t be too bad. If we have time before the bus arrives we can chill out lakeside and jump off the dock. We plan on having lunch at Accalmie “pond” and 2.9 km into the hike we will arrive at the summit of Garde-feu. Located here is the new 21 m tall observation tower showcasing a magnificent view of the beautiful Hautes-Laurentide region as far as the eye can see (definitely a must see). We will ride the bus back to Montreal with your new favorite people and awesome stories to share!
