  • Live in Ottawa? No excuses... the Mt St Patrick Mountain Range lies within an hour's drive to the west.
  • Spectacular views of the surrounding villages and landscape of the Ottawa Valley and Madawaska Highlands -- especially in autumn when the leaves are out in full color.
  • Mount St. Patrick (the village) and the surrounding area, probably more than any place in Ontario, is like a little piece of Ireland itself: the beautiful old church, ancient burial grounds, Holy Well, and most of all the mountains in the background.
