This challenge brings you to the heights of the Mt Saint Patrick Range in Ontario, one of the very few areas within an hour of Ottawa that has the magic combination of elevation, terrain, and aspect. Includes the 15 highest peaks in the Mt. Saint Patrick Range. These peaks have up to 180 meters of vertical drop, great views, and wonderful rolling slopes. This challenge will take you away from the crowds to trails and peaks that many are yet to discover. Created by peakery member UK-Ranger.

Highlights
  • 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.
"We like hiking. It was St. Patricks Day. So it seemed very fitting to go hit some peaks in the Mount St. Patrick mountains! This is one we did before in the Autumn, and it was amazing. We brought our friends with us to enjoy this great area." - Eagle's Nest Lookout, RangersApprentice, Mar 17, 2018
"Second peak of our St Patrick's Day hike of a few mountains in the Mt St Patrick Mountain Range. Some absolutely gorgeous views from up here, especially looking East towards the Laurentians in Quebec." - Dacre Heights, UK-Ranger, Mar 17, 2018
"We like hiking. It was St. Patricks Day. So it seemed very fitting to go hit some peaks in the Mount St. Patrick mountains! This one was mostly a drive up, with a very short walk to the site where the fire tower used to be." - Kennellys Mountain, RangersApprentice, Mar 17, 2018
"For those expecting to find a fire tower here, there isn't one. 3rd and easiest peak of the day, thought we were going to check out an old fire tower. It seems that it's been removed. Shame, views weren't too bad though." - Kennellys Mountain, UK-Ranger, Mar 17, 2018
"We like hiking. It was St. Patricks Day. So it seemed very fitting to go hit some peaks in the Mount St. Patrick mountains! This one was an interesting area - An abandoned ski hill that is open to hikers. Great views and some interesting history." - Dacre Heights, RangersApprentice, Mar 17, 2018
