Meeting Place Location: https://goo.gl/maps/W2P0h
Meet at the site of the former Motel Frontière, which is now completely removed.
Directions: From Montreal take the Champlain Bridge, Highway 10 east to exit 22, Highway 35 south to St. Jean to join Highway 133 south to Philipsburg. Now that the motel has been demolished the location is not easy to see from the southbound side of the road so continue towards the border crossing. Immediately before the border buildings take the well-marked U-turn on the left to cross over to the northbound side of the road. Look on your right for the large white sign telling drivers to fasten their seat belts – the entrance to the old motel site and the parking area is immediately beyond it.
Note: there are two gravelled entrances – do NOT take the first, it is washed out and impassable; the second entry is excellent.
Good choice of trails from long and strenuous to short and easy. Looking for migrating passerines, waterfowl and hawks.
