Origine du nom : Le sentier La French Connection a été aménagé dans le but de relier le sentier L’érablière (6) au futur sentier, aménagé à l’automne 2018, qui partira du refuge du Milieu et reviendra au poste d’accueil en longeant le sentier C. Une connexion entre deux sentiers…on aurait pu l’appeler ''Le Troisième Lien'' ou ''Le Cordon Ombilical''…mais on a choisi ''La French Connection''…brillant, n’est-ce-pas?

Aménagé à l’été 2017 et terminé à l’été 2018, le sentier La French Connection est un sentier relativement facile, aménagé mécaniquement (mini-pelle).

Le sentier débute au milieu d’une montée, sur le sentier L’Érablière. S’ensuit une descente vers une petite rivière, puis une courte montée abrupte, qui mène sur un plateau le long de la réserve écologique. La French Connection se termine au croisement des sentiers multifonctionnels C et D, tout près du refuge du Milieu. Il permettra éventuellement de rejoindre un autre sentier, aménagé à l’automne 2018, qui partira du refuge du Milieu et reviendra au poste d’accueil en longeant le sentier C. Vous comprendrez alors pourquoi on a aménagé La French Connection...

English version

Origin of the name: The purpose of building La French Connection was to connect the trail L'Érablière (6) with the future trail that will lead from the Refuge du Milieu to the Welcome Center. A connection between 2 trails...we could have called it ''The (previously) Missing Link'' or ''The Umbilical Cord''...but we finally opted for ''La French Connection''. Who knows why...
