Sentier Dumoine at Grande Chute

2023 August 20

The Dumoine Tote Road Trail ( https://sentierdumoine.ca/ ) officially opened on Saturday August 26. The previous Sunday, Diana and I undertook an exploratory drive up to Grande Chute -- the last time we visited Grande Chute was 40+ years ago on a canoe trip down the Dumoine led by Don Smith. Our goal was to scout out the road system and to take some photos of the reception area and the near trail. Our impression is that the volunteers have done an excellent job in pulling this all together. And while we were impressed by the work on the trail and facilities, we were also impressed by the nice friendly people we encountered at the trailhead.

Here are some photos of the trailhead and the trail for a short distance downstream (about as far as Ankose -- one of the named campsites).
