Ascent Trip ReportStopped for this MRCG high point with the whole family on our way back to Dollard-des-Ormeaux from Ottawa. I parked the car 100 meters east of the intersection of Chemin Bourget & Chemin Saint-Georges. My wife and my youngest daughter stayed in the car while my oldest daughter and I looked around. We took a couple of picture at the intersection by the street sign.
Then, we walked around the antenna that appeared to be set on the highest ground on the north side of the Chemin Saint-Georges and found an official orange sign stating that there is a bechmark 5.25 meters from the sign. We searched, but could not locate the benchmark. There was no obvious exposed bedrock, just leaves, loose rocks, pieces of concrete. Snapped a couple more pics and went back to the car because my daughter was getting bitten by mosquitos.
If someone goes back there, maybe it would be a good idea to bring a measuring tape and search the circle 5.25 meters (17 ft 3 in) of radius around the orange sign. Send me an e-mail if you find the benchmark.
