High atop a granite ridge overlooking the historic Upper Rideau waterway and the Village of Westport, is Foley Mountain. Foley is famous for its dynamic, hands-on environmental education programs for schools and youth groups, as well as summer day camps and programs for local families. Explore the mature beach, maple, oak and pine forests along the 9Km of winding mountain trails - on foot in the spring to fall seasons and by snowshoe in the winter! Foley offers a beautiful forested group camping area, many day-use picnic spots and a secluded attractive beach on Upper Rideau Lake. Visit the Interpretive Centre, Discovery Centre and Accessibility Trail and don't forget to stop off at Spye Rock for a magnificent view of the lake an Westport - especially in the fall! Eastern Ontario's famous Rideau Trail also crosses through Foley Mt.
